A loan of $550 helped to buy fruits and vegetables.


Margarita's story

Margarita lives in a small village. She is in a common-law relationship with Aricel, and they have a child who is still their responsibility.

She will use the loan to buy fruits and vegetables. She has been working in this activity for two years, and says that it is going well, as with this she has helped her family get ahead in life.

She was self-motivated to support her husband by contributing to the household income, and to provide the basic necessities to her small child.

What she most wishes, is that with this small business she can continue working, so that she can rent a small shop where she can sell her fruit.
