Margarita's story

Margarita is 46 years old and lives in the municipality of San Francisco de Yojoa, Peña Blanca. She is in a civil union and has three children. Margarita has a business selling vegetables and firewood in addition to selling products via catalog and plated jewelry. She has been at this for three years and she has established the vegetable sales in her home. She makes her catalog and plated jewelry sales door-to-door. Margarita says that she feels motivated to continue progressing and getting her business ahead in order to always support her family. She is requesting her first loan of 21,000 lempiras to buy vegetables like cabbage, tomatoes, potatoes, plantains, onion, etc. She will use the other part to buy plated jewelry. With this investment she believes that she will increase her income and have more product to offer her customers. Her dream is to work in her business and be financially solvent so that she does not have to rely on anyone, as well as to improve her family's quality of life.
