Margarita Felipa's story

Margarita Felipa, 64, is married and lives with her husband and two children in the parish of La Magdalena in the Chimbo Canton.

She raises farm animals such as chickens, sheep and pigs. She buys them in the city of Guaranda and sells them in La Magdalena and at the Saturday fair in Chimbo.

The loan she is requesting is to buy more animals and animal feed, allowing her to earn more money. She has lost some animals to illness. Her dream is to buy more land where she can keep the animals and help out her grandchildren.

Margarita enjoys taking care of her animals and celebrating the parish festivities.
