Martha's story

Martha is 20 years old. She is a hardworking and responsible woman. She lives only with her parents. She is a businesswoman. She sells groceries from her house. For the past two years she has been in this business, along with her mother. They are searching for a way to earn income. At first they had a lot of difficulty because they had few sales and they didn't earn much. But with time they began to provide a greater variety of goods and they began to increase their sales. Thanks to God and their united family, they are moving forward and now they have a stable business that generates income. As an enterprising woman, Martha hopes to increase her small business and make it grow in a way that will increase the goods that she provides for her customer. She wants to offer them better quality products. This is Martha's first loan from KIVA and she is very appreciative of the economic support she receives. She promises to pay her payments on time. The money she is requesting, 1500.00 soles, she will use to buy grocery products such as rice, sugar and milk among others.
