María Auxiliadora L., age 55, is a single mother with one child. Her child is why she puts forth great effort in her business. She works from Monday to Sunday from six thirty in the morning until five in the afternoon to get her child ahead.
Mrs. L. was a housewife before she had this business. Her son, who is outside of the country, gave her economic support. She decided to set up her business of selling refreshments and bread and butter. Now she sells gift paper, soft drinks, Diana products, and chilled water in her small shop.
She has worked with us for four years. The loans she has requested in that time have been to stock her store. She buys merchandise at good prices and does not take loans from the providers.

Founded in 1991 and based in Managua, Nicaragua, CEPRODEL specializes in the development and funding of housing cooperatives for traditionally marginalized communities, the provision of microfinance services to small businesses, and the promotion of innovative renewable energy projects. In addition, unlike many microfinance institutions in the area that have chosen to avoid the rural areas of the country due to the increased financial risk, CEPRODEL provides financial services to numerous clients in the agriculture and livestock industry. Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.
