Margarita's story

Margarita is a member of the communal bank “Virgen de las Mercedes” in Juanjui, Mariscal Cáceres, San Martín. She is 43, married and the mother of four children, one of whom has her own family. Margarita raises fish and seafood for household consumption. With a small base capital of S/ 300.00 soles she was able to grow her business and now has an established clientele. She now seeks a credit of S/ 1200.00 to buy fishing nets, fish feed, fish and mollusk stock, in order to increase production and satisfy client demand. Her clients are very pleased with her service. Margarita dreams of having an expanded fish farm, and is grateful to the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for the support she has been given.
