Marta Gladis
Marta lives on the same plot of land as her children, though they all live in separate houses. She works by herself, selling snack items and the corn products. She has a stand located in front of the center of education, where each day she offers her customers corn tamales, corn on the cob with different toppings, and atol (hot drinks made with a corn base).

Marta is requesting a loan to buy corn, hoja de huerta (leaves used to make tamales and corn on the cobs), fertilizer, and weed-killer in order to start growing corn. This will help her sow her crops as well as help with her snack sales. Marta's dream is to continue this business and help with the educational expenses of her grandchild.
