Sandra Margarita
Sandra is a 36 year old woman. She is single and has no children. Due to poor economic resources at home she was only able to finish elementary school without the opportunity to graduate from high school and even less to get a professional degree leaving her frustrated because she has not accomplished many of her dreams.

She lives in the district of Santo Domingo in the Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas province.
Santo Domingo connects the Ecuadorian mountain region with the coastal region. It is a city which has turned into the commerical axis with several growing sectors. As proof it has several entrepreneurial families that a few years ago started with small businesses. Studies show that a majoriity of the businesses started empirically and have grown due to tourists, business people and travelers moving from one region to the other.

Sandra lives in the Puerto Limón parish in this district. This sector was inhabited by a Tsáchila community many years ago and has several tourist attractions. Also, a majority of the inhabitants of this parish work in agriculture and livestock.

Since she was very little Sandra helped her parents to raise chickens and hens for sale. After school she would help her mother with chores around the house as well as taking care of the animals.

With this training Sandra started her own business two years ago. She also takes care of a small feed selling business out of her home. She spends eight hours a day on this business.

Sandra has always had high expectations and goals. This is why she now wants to expand her feed and chicken raising business. She wants to use some form of advertisement and in this way increase her income and gain personal fulfillment.

She is requesting this loan to buy the necessary supplies.


Fundación Alternativa gave her the attention that she needed and has not been able to get before.

Sandra is thankful for everyone around the world who is helping her dreams come true.
