Martha Maria's story

Martha María is 26 years old. She works as a merchant and is married with two young children, ages 2 and 7. The older child is in primary school.

She has had a small grocery store for five years. She is very grateful for the support for her business. With plenty of effort and dedication, she has been able to provide for her two children, who are still in her care.

She is applying for financing to grow her business by buying products such as rice, sugar, beans, corn, soap, oats, oil, wheat, vegetables, and other products which her clients request. She will then be able to offer them a wide variety of products.
