Margarita's story

Margarita’s a single, 52-year-old lady who has three children: two girls and one boy. They live in Sololá. She’s worked as a craftswoman and weaver for 15 years. She chose this work because she can sell her wares in the small crafts store she has. By means of what she sells at home she earns income and adequate profits to cover family expenses.

She also has a second occupation in agriculture. She does this because she wants to improve her income and contribute to her family’s progress.

She’s asking for a 9,000 Quetzal loan to buy carrot seeds and organic fertilizer to grow carrots. She dreams with expanding the business and buying a piece of land by means of the profits she earns through the work she does.
