Martha Carolina's story

Martha Carolina is a mother to two children. She has worked as a teacher at one of the schools in the city of Leon for 11 years, giving the gift of knowledge to her students. She works from Monday to Friday, starting at 7:00am and finishing at 1:00pm. She does this type of work in order to support her family.

As well as working as a teacher, Martha sells cosmetics to her colleagues and to the general public. Accordingly, she has applied to CEPRODEL for a loan which she will use to purchase cosmetics, such as perfumes, nail polish, lipsticks, creams, shampoos, Vanidades [a magazine], etc.

She does this work in order to have a higher income and thereby improve her humble home. She dreams of her two children having a professional career.
