Martha Ines's story

Martha is a 54-year old rural woman who is the mother of two young children. Her financial situation motivated her to sell all kinds of fried foods, pastries, and soft drinks from her home to help with the family's expenses and be able to provide her children with an education. Her greatest dream is to improve her financial situation because her husband does not have steady work and sometimes they do not have enough to feed their family. Her children's future is her greatest concern because she wants them to have better opportunities. In order to improve her situation, Martha is requesting a loan to buy supplies, which will allow her to increase her sales volume.
