Margarita's story

Margarita is 28 years old and is married to Rudy. Together they have 2 children: Jack, 10 and Anahi, 4. Margarita and her family live in her mother's home located in the central district of the jungle. Margarita is very hardworking and is dedicated to several things including making wooden crates, or as a day laborer.

In all this time, she gathered the money needed to open a small fast food stand where she sells kebabs, burgers, sausages, and french fries. It was received very well. She says, "People already know me, that is why they come to eat. Also on these foods there is no loss."

These days there are no crops, and not much agricultural work. Therefore, she is focused on food preparation. She plans to increase her sales and wants to extend her space and put up shelves and offer more products, such as groceries and staples. For this, she requires your help.

This is her 12th loan with MFP. For this reason, she promises to be punctual with the payments. At the same time she mentioned she feels happy working with the “Luz del futuro” (Light of the Future) group, due to the solidarity and confidence of its partners.

With the 3000 soles ($1175) she will acquire more meat and ingredients for the food preparation and also plans to buy groceries and staples to extend her business in a small store.
