A loan of $550 helped to buy merchandise for her clothes store.


Martha Cecilia's story

Martha is 49 years old; she has been a businesswoman for some years. After separating from her husband, she had to come up with a way of generating resources to support her three children and give them an education. It was for this reason that she began selling clothing to her relatives and friends as an economic activity. Currently, thanks to her efforts and dedication, she succeeded in starting her own store, which has allowed her to increase her sales and improve the quality of life in her home. Now, she is requesting a loan that she will invest in the purchase of supplies, with the goal of continuing to grow within the local market. She dreams of giving her children the opportunity to enter into higher education and graduate as professionals.
