A loan of $525 helped to buy building materials.

Martha Elena's story

Martha lives in Tegucigalpa and has two children who depend on her. Her husband passed away a few months ago, so she is the sole provider. Her children attend school. She studied clothes making ten years ago and she started providing services to her friends. Since then, she has had steady customers and neighbors who bring their clothing in for repair.

Martha, thanks to her business and her husband’s encouragement, built various rooms which generate other income because she rents them out. She is very friendly, charismatic, and well known in her neighborhood.

Martha is asking for this loan in order to buy cement, rods, sand, and bricks which she will use to build a wall in the inside part of her house. It’s currently made out of wood and her dream is to see it nicely finished.
