Margarita's story

Margarita is a member of the 'Arco Iris' (Rainbow) community bank. Her business is selling meat in open-air markets.

Thanks to the training that she has received, Margarita has learned to manage her business well. She has learned to save, and to be punctual and responsible. She is grateful for all the loans that she has been given because, thanks to them, she has had more capital available and been able to provide her children with a better education. She recalls that when her husband became seriously ill, Finca were the only ones to help her. She will never forget this. The training that she has received has helped her to value herself as a woman and she has learned to be happy with what she has. She will use the loan that she is requesting to buy meat.
