Margarita's story

Margarita is a member of the Hormigas village bank. She is 60 years old and the single mother of one son. She has been a member of FINCA Perú for 16 years and owns a pharmacy. She says that FINCA Perú has given her a lot of help, and the support she's gotten from her village bank has taught her to work, to value herself, and to educate her son, who now has a successful career. Her dream is to be a businesswoman and buy houses to then sell them again, but most of all she wants to keep moving forward. She will invest the requested loan in products such as pills, cough syrups, rubbing alcohol, gauze, other medications, and so on to sell in her pharmacy.
