Martha Nohemy's story

Martha is 39 years old and lives in her own house together with her partner and three children. She makes a living selling poliada [a traditional dessert] at a place in the outskirts of her neighborhood. She has many customers due to her kindness and hygiene regarding preparation. With her earnings she is able to cover some home expenses. Martha is requesting a loan to buy ingredients, such as sugar, milk, flour, cinnamon, etc., so as to be able to continue with her business, which is her sole means of income. With it she hopes to give her family a better quality of life.
