Margoth Elizabeth's story

Margoth Elizabeth is 22 years old. She is single, doesn't have any children, and lives with her mother in Cuatro Esquinas neighborhood, in Guaranda, in Bolívar province.

Margoth Elizabeth is a member of the 'Cuatro Esquinas Central' group which is located 20 minutes from the office. It has 16 members who are all from the same community.

Margoth Elizabeth's business is raising pigs and chickens. She also studies. She makes her sales and purchases in the city of Guaranda and in her own neighborhood.

Margoth Elizabeth is requesting this loan to buy chickens, nutritionally-balanced feed and vaccines. With the help of this loan, she will be able to buy vaccines so that her animals are in a good condition before she sells them.

Margoth Elizabeth's dream is to own her own truck. The challenge that she faces is one of competition. In her free time, she enjoys relaxing and taking part in Carnaval celebrations.
