Margarita De Jesus's story

Margarita de Jesus is 42 years old and lives in the neighbourhood of Victor Argeñal in Choluteca. She earns her living by selling fruit and vegetables at the Concepcion market in Choluteca. Margarita has two adolescent children. Margarita gets up at 5 every morning to open her stall and attend to her customers, since there are many people who eat fruit for breakfast. Margarita relies on her husband, who is a [taxi] driver, to cover their household costs. In their free time, they go to church. The loan will be used to purchase fruit and vegetables for Margarita's business.
