Margarita Gaudiosa's story

Margarita Gaudiosa D. D. A. is 65 years old. She belongs to the Community Bank Las Emprendedoras II and lives on 495 Libertad Street in Puerto Marítimo D. Salaverry in the province of Trujillo in the state of La Libertad, Perú. She studied Education, but never practiced her profession. She is married and has 4 children, all of whom have left home. Margarita sells fast food, such as rotisserie chicken, fried chicken, churrasco [barbecued meat], etc. She is well-known in her environment, and her clients prefer her because she cooks very well. She performs her activities in her house.

The first loan she received was 300 soles, which she repaid in 4 installments. All of this loan was invested in consumables for her business. With this loan of 1700 soles, which she will repay in 6 installments, she will buy all that may be necessary for her fast food business. So, as the end-of-year holidays approach her business will grow. Margarita wishes to travel constantly. This is her passion.
