Margarita lives in the village of La Guardia, located 20 km from the town of Santa Cruz. A native of the Cochabamba department, she moved to the Santa Cruz department around 30 years ago. She has a child who depends economically on her, her husband engages in transportation and she is a street vendor selling snacks such as sandwiches in La Ramada (a very well-known market in town). The loan she is requesting will be used to finish building her house: as the initial works have been completed, she now needs to buy paint, tessellated pavement and so on. She is really thankful to this institution for the support provided.
