Martha Isabel
View original language description ↓
Martha Isabel C. works very hard running a tailor's shop from her home in the county of La Paz Centro in the city of Leon. She has been doing this for 20 long years and throughout this time she has managed to gather a lot of experience in her field.

She is a single mother with a young son that she must support. Her multiple efforts are all so that she can feed him and pay for his education. Now she is asking for a loan so that she can buy equipment for her work such as needles, thread, material and more. This is why she is looking for financing from Ceprodel; so that she can get the necessary credit and therefore continue with her business.
