Margarita's story

Margarita T. was born August 15th, 1970, and she is 38. A long time ago she started to like commerce. She sold cosmetics, clothes, and meat by the pound, but in small quantities. Little by little her business was growing. With the passage of the years, she had the idea to set up a stall in the Los Dolores market in the capital city.

After applying, much time passed, and then she was approved. She set up a butcher shop named Manoa.

She has three children, and together with her husband they have been able to get ahead. Her life has been very hard, but now the reward is good. Her business is growing a lot. She bought another place to expand her business, but she needs capital to buy more meat and have more sales.
