Karla Patricia
Karla is a very bright woman and began her business of selling shoes in the “Bisne” marketplace in Chinandega. Until now she’s been able to maintain her business because she has customers who buy from her daily.

She is requesting this loan in order to invest in more shoes, particularly school shoes, as the school year has begun, and she must begin selling them immediately. She hopes that this loan will be granted so that she can continue to grow her business.
