Margarita Verónica's story

Margarita Veronica has been a merchant at one of Chinandega's markets for 21 years. As a business, she sells a little of everything : plastic and wood items, crafts, etc. Margarita is married. She has three children, two of whom go to school; she takes the youngest one to a preschool in the main market, while she works hard in her business in order to bring her household their daily bread. She is requesting financing to purchase merchandise for her business to prepare for the Christmas season.
