Margarita Elizabeth's story

Margarita is 57 years old, married, and has 3 children who are older. Her husband is a driver in the city and they live in Jaramijo, a beautiful place where the inhabitants are humble, hardworking, and work in the seafood business.

Margarita is a very hardworking woman who daily makes an effort to earn her own income to be able to cover the expenses of her home. For this reason, she has worked for the last 4 years on weekends selling exquisite fast foods from her home like empanadas, fried meat pies, and plantain and fish fritters, among other delicious foods. In this way her customers can enjoy a variety of fast foods. On top of this work, in her free time she sells beauty products so she can earn more income to continue with her business.

This loan is to purchase basic necessities and beauty products. Her dreams is to have a property that is sufficient to continue growing her business.
