A loan of $1,500 helped to buy sewing supplies for her business.

Marta Alicia's story

Marta, 36, only has a middle school education. She is a single mother since her husband left her and the two children. She gets up at 4:30 a.m. with her children who attend school and depend on her for an income.

Marta makes men's and women's clothing. It is a trade she learned from her mother. She sells her products at the market and in neighboring towns and villages.

The loan she is requesting through Fundación Campo is to buy sewing materials for her business. She cannot invest enough on her own and needs to generate an income for the family.

In the future she wants to send her children to the university so they can have professional careers and a better future.
