Martina Aracelly's story

Martina a humble lady of 31 years of age, native of Granada, married, mother of 2 children between the ages of 3 and 8 years old, works as a seller. She sells second hand clothes. She started working at a very young age, in business, with small loans, which allowed her to buy 2 bundles of clothes. This is how she started her business selling clothes. This business earns her money every day; she has customers, and the support of her mother. She hopes to grow the business.

The start of the school year is approaching and for this reason she is requesting this loan to buy clothes, copybooks, pencils, erasers, rulers, etc. With the aim of increasing her stock of merchandise to take advantage of this selling period and so get better earnings in her business. Her future plans are to diversify her stock to offer a greater variety of clothes to her customers.
