Daysi Margarita's story

Daysi Margarita and her family leave in the Montecristi district, known nationally and internationally for its rich pre-colonial culture and handicraft.

Thanks to the loans granted to Daysi, she has been able to improve her business and the life of her family. She has a factory where she, and her children, make buttons with tague (a nut with an interior that looks and feels like ivory that can be carved into handicrafts). Once per week they take what they have produced to sellers who then take them to Manta, where they are later sold to other countries.

For her, the loans are very important as they help her finance her business.

This loan is to buy tagua and other materials needed to create the buttons.

Her dream is to continue improving her factory.
