Margot's story

Miss Margo, member of the Communal Bank "Maria Auxiliadora", lives in the San Martin region, province and district of Tarapoto. She sells wood, eggs, charcoal, and grilled items during the evenings. Her business is located in her home at AA. HH 2 de febrero Mz L2, district of Banda de Shilcayo, which is where her clients come, clients that are the residents of her neighborhood. With this loan for $175, which she will pay back in 4 months, she'll buy large quantities of wood, eggs by the case, oil by the gallon, chicken, spices (cumin, pepper, garlic, etc.) salt, plantains, and other ingredients that she purchases daily to prepare her grilled items and thus stock her business and ensure sales. Margot is a young enthusiastic and happy woman. She is content with her work as it allows her to cover the cost of her studies. Later on she would like to have her own small business, a well-stocked grocery store.
