Marthy Corena's story

Marthy is 28 years old and has a partner. She has two children, who are 3 and 5 years old. She studied until the 9th grade because her parents didn't value education and decided to take her out of school so that she could serve customers at their shop. Marthy's spouse works in masonry. She lives with him and their children.

For the moment, Marthy is a homemaker, and has been since she and her partner got together. However, she has experience in administrating her family's shop and in customer service. She will invest this loan in purchasing a variety of merchandise in order to start up the shop again that she used to have in her home. They had previously closed it down because Marthy's mother didn't want to run it anymore. Marthy will buy bulk grains, personal hygiene products, kitchen goods, sweets, drinks, fruits and some vegetables.

Marthy hopes that the investment turns out well and that her shop gains the same popularity that her mother's shop used to have.
