Margalida's story

Margalida is 23 years old. She lives with her partner and has a three-year-old son. Before, Margalida made a living helping her husband in his workshop, producing jewellery, but later she began selling watches and women's accessories. Little by little, she saved up until she had enough start-up capital to build up stock (clothes and women's accessories). She started the business eight months ago and has managed to earn an income to support her young son and her household. With this loan, Margalida would like to buy more merchandise (blouses, jeans, women's accessories) in order to offer a greater variety of products to her customers, and increase her sales. Margalida's biggest dream is to have her shop very well-stocked - this would allow her to offer something for her customers' needs and tastes, and allow her to increase her income and provide her child with a better quality of living and well-being.
