Margarita's story

Margarita M. D. M. lives in Lourdes Colón, in the La Libertad department, together with her children and husband. She owns a small business of varied goods, carrying items such as baby products, necklaces, paper goods and “pan dulce”. Pan dulce is a traditional bread of El Salvador maD. with sugar and, in some cases, jelly. Margarita wishes to expand her business, which is why she is requesting a loan through which she will be able to purchase many more products for her store. In this way, she can attract customers from the vicinity of her enterprise. She does all this with the aim of providing a better standard of living for her children. She also does it to help her husband pay for the household expenses, since his earnings alone do not cover the family’s needs. These are the reasons why it is so important to Margarita to improve her business.
