It was very hard to work with very little money or help, but she kept working from sunrise to sundown to get out her first crop.
Her first experience in business came at the hands of outside brokers----- who came to her farm and offered her money and a working loan for her crop, but without disclosing the high interest rates applied to her loan.
That year was very difficult for her, and making ends meet with defaulting on her loan or going under was an extreme challenge.
Trying to stay positive through this ordeal, she combined her strong work ethic along with daily prayers ----all the while trying to make arrangements with the lenders so she would not lose her farm.
Her persistence and determination eventually paid off, and she met a family that offered her a more productive way of producing her goods and services.
A family farmer and coffee roaster from Matagalpa, Nicaragua offered to pay her debt, and also help her with the financing for the new crop.
But it was not only that-------- she was going to be able to sell her entire production... her coffee was going to be in the local and regional supermarkets, roasted and packaged!
And she was going to participate in the profits, advancing her financial capability to educate her kids, nurture her elderly mother and work with more help at her farm.
Martha's success came because of her determination to never quit, no matter how hard the circumstances.

I'll leave you with this affirmation that you can say daily to give you that little Lifeboost:
I am too positive to be doubtful
I am too optimistic to be fearful
I am too determined to be defeated!
Make it a great day today!
