Mrs. Martha will use this loan to purchase a variety of groceries like rice, sugar and beans in bulk in order to stock her business and to be able to offer a wider variety of items to her customers. Her reason for asking for this loan is to continue improving her business.

Her hope is to have her own store and to be able to provide a better service to her clients. Mrs. Martha is happy for the opportunity given her since this is the only economic activity that allows her to continue to support herself. Mrs. Martha is happy and grateful that this institution has given her so much support as well as for the support given to her partners.
