Martha Nelly's story

Martha is 55 years old, and is the mother of three children, who she has gotten ahead with a lot of effort and dedication. She is now the head of the household as she separated from her husband many years ago. During 14 years of her career, she has worked as an independent businesswoman, selling children's clothing in a small outpost located in the center of the city. There, she works alone everyday from 9am to 6pm, which allows her to earn an income to cover her family's expenses. The requested loan will be used to purchase an assortment of children's clothing in bulk (shirts, pants, jackets). This will allow her to offer a greater variety to her customers, and therefore increase her sales and earnings. Martha states that her greatest desire is to continue to work hard so that she can have financial stability that will allow her to enjoy better living conditions and wellness, and to spend her old age with dignity and tranquility.
