Sandra Margarita's story

Sandra Margarita, 59, is married and the mother of four children. She lives in the La Hoya neighborhood in Juticalpa Municipality. She sells ‘rosquillas’ [cookies] and quesadillas.

Sandra learned to make rosquillas and quesadillas over 30 years ago and started working with a neighbor who worked in this activity. Her products are preferred by Juticalpa residents and also by people living abroad since most of her product is purchased to be shipped to relatives or friends living in the United States. She works with her youngest son and her work day starts at 4am which is very demanding. However, once the product is out of the oven she can rest while her son takes care of customers.

The loan Sandra is requesting is needed to buy milk, corn, sugar, firewood and eggs among other products to make rosquillas and quesadillas. With support from the loan, Sandra will be able to fill some pending orders she has which will generate profits to cover some household expense like rent.
