Martha's story

Martha is 43 years old, single with two dependent children. She lives in San Lorenzo in the south of Honduras in the house of a relative. For the past 25 years she has sold tortillas. Martha's clients prefer her because she is friendly and provides good service. She works from 6 am until 7 pm. She is a hard-working woman who wants to get her family and business ahead.

Martha is requesting this loan to buy wood, corn and lime. She also wants to improve her work area. With the help of the loan she hopes to have enough raw material for this season which is when she sells a lot. She is happy to continue working with Prisma. Martha's dream is to own her own house as she now lives in a relative's home
