Margarita's story

Ms. Margarita is married with three older children. She lives in La Guardia, 20 kilometers from the city of Santa Cruz, in the Lindo neighborhood. She is making payments towards her home. Her husband works as a chauffeur and she works as a vendor, selling sweets, detergents, soap, condiments, etc. In addition, she sells ducks at the El Torno agriculture market on the weekends. Both her and her husband work very hard in order to be able to pay off the credit on their house. The loan that she is seeking is to fix certain parts of their home that is in bad condition. One of her dreams is to see her house finished. She is a responsible and hard working person. She is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for believing in her and offering her credit.
