Martha Lorena's story

Martha Lorena has a business selling cosmetics and jewellery in one of busiest markets in the city of León.

Martha begins work early in the morning, at 6.30am, to offer her customers a variety of cosmetics and jewellery. She returns home at 5pm to relax. Martha works these same hours seven days a week.

Martha is applying for a loan from "Ceprodel" in order to buy cosmetics, jewellery, purses and handbags. This will generate a higher income and improve both her and her family's quality of life.
