Martha Maria's story

Martha María is a very hardworking and dedicated woman. She has two children with her husband. He works in a lathe and welding shop. She continues to work as a maid and selling beverages to share her two children's education expenses. Since she was a teenager, she has fought to get ahead, despite personal and family obstacles. She guarantees that she has started construction on her house on the right foot, supported by a loan from AFODENIC. Nonetheless, she is still a long way from considering her house to be safe and in the conditions she needs for her family. She is asking for her second loan to buy construction materials such as blocks, cement, sand and iron. With these, she will advance the construction of the walls of her house. Martha plans in the future on being able to open her own business in her house. This will allow her to spend more time with her children.
