Margarita Maria's story

Margarita is a person who is known for being very hard-working and always wanting to provide for the well-being of her family. Margarita is married and is the mother of four children, who are the motivation for her to strive every day in her work. Margarita, like her husband, works as an employee at a farm near her house, and thanks to this she contributes to the income of her household. In the past, Margarita had a vegetable plot at her house, with which she generated extra income for her household. Due to adverse circumstances, she was forced to give up her cultivation and work at her job as an employee at the farm. With the spirit to re-establish her vegetable cultivation, Margarita hopes that a loan will offer her the possibility of purchasing seeds, compost, irrigation, and fertilizers, so that she can re-establish the cultivation of vegetables at her house. Margarita hopes that in this way she can return to generating extra income and thus offer her family a better quality of life. In addition, Margarita hopes to be able to offer her children access to a university education and provide them with economic stability. Margarita dreams that her crops will grow and she will be able to find many good customers, so that in the future she can have some more reliable income.
