Margarita's story

Margarita is a member of the Violeta Communal Bank. She is 45 and the owner of a hardware store. She is the mother of five children, married, and has been a member of Finca for two years.

Margarita began as a traveling street vendor, selling chicken. A disaster happened to her and she didn't know what to do, so a friend invited her to Finca. To date, things are very much improved, thanks to their training and financial support. She really values the trust that they give to women of very few economic resources. Now her business has grown, and with this loan she will buy construction materials.
