Her business is located in a very busy market near her place of residence which is quite an advantage when it comes to sales. She uses what she earns from her work to cover some of her household expenses.

She lives in a house of her own with her husband and two children who are 12 and 7 years of age; they are currently attending school.

Martha’s asking for a loan to buy corn at wholesale, milk and cheese to continue in business to give her family better economic stability.
