A loan of $1,600 helped to buy wholesale products (vegetables, snacks, dairy products, meat, biscuits, candy, etc) and to make improvements to her business.


Marta Luz's story

Marta is 44 years old, she is a mother of 3 children and lives with her partner. She started her own business 2 years ago, a home-based grocery store offering a variety of products and staple goods.

The idea of this business came from the need to generate income for her family, given that they were in a difficult financial situation. Thanks to the support from previous loans, she was able to open this grocery store, tackling their economic crisis while also becoming well known in her area.

Marta has achieved economic stability for her family through her perseverance, enthusiasm, and her efforts. This is why she finds the motivation to request her fourth loan, to buy an assortment of wholesale products (vegetables, snacks, dairy products, meat, biscuits, candy, etc). In addition, she will also make improvements to her establishment, to attract more costumers.

She will be able to offer a wider variety of products to meet her customers' needs, increasing her sales and in the long run her profits. Marta wants to continue to work hard, strengthening her business to go on supporting her family, offering good living conditions for her children and a good education, so that they become good citizens and get ahead in life.
