Margarita's story

Margarita lives in the city of Estelí. She is a housewife and a single mother. Her children are studying, as is she; she is in her fifth year of a degree in law. Her goal is to provide her family with a better standard of living, and to achieve a professional career. She gets by by means of her general store, a business through which she maintains her family and covers the household costs. She thinks that her location is very good because there are not many general stores in the area. She needs a loan for the purchase of basic staples, cleaning products, oil, pencils, notebooks, erasers, cosmetics, sauces, canned goods, etc. This will help her to stock up on more products, to vary her merchandise, and to offer different products that the other general stores don't offer.
