Margarita Del Transito's story

Margarita del Transito is 35 years old and lives with her husband and children. She earns her living selling food in the community where she lives. She offers a range of dishes for breakfasts and lunches such as chicken, meat, rice, salads etc. to her many customers. They seek her out because she uses quality ingredients, charges fair prices, and provides great service.

Margarita is an enterprising woman with a great desire to get ahead. She is always on the look out for new ways to be successful. In the last few weeks demand has increased, and she wishes to take advantage of the situation by investing loan money from INTEGRAL in the purchase of meat, vegetables, basic grains, drinks etc.

Margarita del Transito has a good repayment record and is confident that she will be able to pay off her debt, and at the same time provide her family with a better life.
