Marta's story

Marta is a 46 year old woman who lives in Pucallpa, in Aguaytia District. She is a hard-working single mother who puts all her effort into getting her four children ahead. Unfortunately due to a lack of resources since she was young, she could not complete her Secondary School studies. Through her own initiative Marta works in her small business selling food. She also raises and sells poultry. She works about ten hours a day and feels that it is going well for her, thanks to her effort and dedication.

Marta is very grateful to The Kiva lenders. Thanks to them she can buy tables and utensils for her business. Also she will buy balanced feed for her poultry. She can continue working and striving to achieve her dream, which is to have her own home.
