Duo Margarita De San Pedro Group's story

Margarita de San Pedro duo is formed by Margarita, 33 years old, married, and the mother of two girls. She sells clothing of a variety of fabric for women, men, and children. She also sells shoes in general, such as flats, sneakers and boots. These days, she has a third business which is the sale of gifts for all occasions such as small items made of china and aluminum, and jewelry, glassware, and perfumes.

She began her sales as a street vendor 9 years ago. Currently she rents a space and her dream is to build her own retail space so not to pay rent. She wants to see her daughters in university and becoming doctors. For this, she works a lot to give them a better opportunity which she did not have.

Since summer has arrived, she needs to purchase blouses, pants, and light clothing for the heat, and the money she has is not enough. For this she needs another loan to be able to invest and take advantage of the sales to have good earnings. She is grateful to Kiva for the offered help.
