Margarita
Margarita has 12 years of experience selling meat and pork. She works in this business together with her husband. She has succeeded in taking the business forward little by little with her savings. Currently she sells pork and chickens by the pound. She works only weekends, from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m. She and her husband slaughter the chickens they later distribute to their clients in the food business.

Margarita wants this loan so that she can invest in more meat, which will allow her to increase her earnings. She hopes that with the investment she will be able to work every day of the week.

Margarita is married with 4 adult children. She lives with her husband, her mother and a grandchild whom she is raising. Her husband handles the distribution of the chickens and pork. She helps him prepare the carcasses. He also works making deliveries with a cart the couple owns. In addition to her business, Margarita works in an administrative position in a health clinic. She is hoping that with this investment she will be able to improve her life and that of her family.
