Margarita's story

Margarita, 58, lives in the community of San Pedro in Mizque Province, Cochabamba Department. She no longer has any dependent children. Because of the recent frost natural disaster in the zone, her small parcel of tomatoes and potatoes did not ripen properly. This disaster caused her expected family income to fail.

Margarita is a well-loved, respected person where she lives because of her dedication to work. Sometimes she even has to work as a day laborer to earn a few pesos to support herself.

She’s requesting the loan to buy potato and onion seeds, organic manure and agrochemicals for her crops to increase production and improve her income. The loan will help her much with the hard work she does.
