Martha Lucía's story

Martha has had a business selling food for the past 3 years. She started it because she wanted to contribute to her household economy with the income so that her husband and 2 children could have a better quality of life. Thanks to her efforts, she has been able to improve her business little by little and also improve her income. This has allowed her 2 children to attend a better school. Currently, her husband is very ill, and so he hasn’t been able to work, which has greatly reduced his income. This is why Martha, needing to generate more income, is requesting a loan to buy utensils for preparing her foods and to buy ingredients to make a greater variety of foods. Her dream is get ahead with her business and offer a better quality of life to her husband and 2 children.
