View original language description ↓
Margarita is an exceptional wife and mother as, although she cannot count on any income from her husband due to his bad health (he has a bad back and cannot move normally), she does the best she can to get through their problems and help him to recuperate. She would like a loan to be able to improve her small shop, and thereby increase their income and her beloved family's quality of life.

Translated from Spanish by Liz Harvey, Kiva Volunteer

MARGARITA, es una esposa y madre excepcional porque a pesar de no contar con los ingresos de su esposo quien se encuentra delicado de salud por un mal que tiene en la columna y que no lo deja desplazarse con normalidad; hace todo el esfuerzo posible para desempeñarse sin problemas con la esperanza de ayudarlo a recuperarse pronto. Con el deseo de mejorar su desempeño en su pequeña bodeguita, solicita un préstamo para incrementar sus ingresos y el nivel de vida de su amada familia.
