Marta Hirlesa's story

Marta is a very hardworking person and with great effort has raised her 6 year old son. She is a single mother and head of the household, as the father of her child abandoned her some time ago without contributing financially to their support. A year and a half ago she started a business selling items such as toiletries and personal care items, which she began with the settlement she was left with in the work she held for eight years. This business has helped her improve her quality of life considerably and for one and a half years her son has been able to access a better quality education. Now that her sales are growing, Marta needs a loan in order to buy personal use products and supply her business with products that have been depleted, offering a better variety and thus overcoming the difficulty of capital. Her dream is to make this business a great source of income for the household in order to permit her to enjoy a better quality of life and better financial opportunities in order to make progress.
