Nilmida
View original language description ↓
Nilmida has had her business for four years. She used to work cleaning homes, but then her and her husband decided to invest in basic food products and they started to sell meals, which has gone very well. She does this weekdays from 4pm to 11pm. She has managed to keep both activities going so that she earns more. Each morning she still cleans houses and each afternoon she prepares the meals she is going to sell.


With the loan she will buy kitchen utensils and food and drink as the more you buy the larger the discount, and therefore her earnings will increase.


Nilmida is 41 years old and has 3 children, one of which helps her with her business. She has managed to create a very hard working spirit in her family, which all of them still have. Her husband also cleans houses and after work he helps her attend to her clients. Their house is made of sugar cane stalks and the floor is of earth. She hopes that with the loan and their savings they will be able to start building it, little by little, of cement.

Nilmida tiene una experiencia de 4 años con el negocio. Ella se dedicaba a trabajar en casa realizando quehaceres domésticos. Junto a su esposo logran invertir en la compra de víveres y comienzan a vender meriendas. Actividad que le ha ido muy bien. Trabajando todos los días de la semana en horario de 4 p.m. hasta las 11 p.m. Actualmente ella ha logrado mantener las dos actividades que le generan ingresos. Por las mañanas continuas con su limpieza en casa y por las tardes se dedica a preparar las meriendas para su venta.



El crédito lo invertirá en la compra de utensilios de cocina. Además poder comprar víveres al por mayor con lo que obtendría mayor descuento. Y por ende las ganancias en sus ventas van a ser mayor.
