Margarita Amanda's story

Margarita sells books. She is a long-term customer of the microfinance organization and is now on her fourth loan cycle. She is single and lives in a house with her mother. The house is located in the Tembladerani Zone in the city of La Paz. Margarita has been selling books, with her sister Silvana, for the past three years. She sells all types of books: social studies, math, politics, medicine, etc. She sells a large variety of books. This loan will be used to buy books wholesale for the requests that she has for the new year. There is a large demand for books at this time. This is the only source of income for Margarita. She is thankful for this institution that has allowed her to improve the quality of her life.
