Las Margaritas Group's story

Rosa, age 41, is single, but she has two children. Jesús, age 18, is in his third year of high school. Brisa, age 14, is in her second year of middle school.

Rosa sells clothes (on occasion she also sells flan and gelatin). She has had the business for nine years. Even since she was left single, she started taking care of her family.

She wants a loan to be able to stock her business and make it bigger. She has the business in her house so that she is able to spend time with her family.
