Margarita's story

Margarita lives in a rural area with her husband. She managed to study up to elementary school. Her rustic home is made of adobe with a Spanish tile roof; she lacks some basic services.

She's a hardworking person. She and her husband work every day with great optimism to earn an income to support themselves. She has earned a living in agriculture for about 19 years, growing and selling her crop.

She takes what she grows to sell at the provincial markets in the region. Her main crops are wholesale potatoes, fava beans, and oats, as well as others in smaller quantities, usually for her own consumption.

Margarita needs to request the loan to buy organic soil amendments (hen manure) and potato seeds. That way she can expand her production, continue making sales, and be able to improve her quality of life.
