Marta Lidia's story

Marta is 44 years old, married with three children and lives in the municipality of Macuelizo, Santa Barbara. Marta has always liked business so three years ago she set up her own store selling second hand clothes such as jumpers, pants, children's clothing, underwear, shirts, skirts, and shoes as well.

Marta has requested a loan of 20,000 lempiras to stock up on new and used clothing for women, men and children, with the goal of creating an inventory and taking advantage of the Christmas season. Her plan is to continue running her business to gain an income and help her children get an education.
