A loan of $1,400 helped to buy a sewing machine and furniture for her workshop.


Marta Eugenia's story

Marta is a 50-year-old woman who is married and has four children. Two of her children are still young, so they live with her and her husband.

Doña Marta and her husband manufacture and sell baby shoes. They have been in this business for 28 years and have a solid customer base. Marta and her husband offer quality products that are well-made.

They want to improve their working conditions by purchasing a sewing machine and furniture. In addition, they have the option to acquire a vehicle for visiting more clients. The additional working capital will increase their production.

Marta’s dream is to have her own shop and to be able to buy a greater quantity of raw materials for increasing her production. As a result, she will be able to help her children move forward by providing for their studies and improving their quality of life.
