Meyling Gioconda
View original language description ↓

Meyling G. comes from San Rafael del Sur in Managua and has a business selling clothes from her own premises at home. She started this line of work three years ago, which has enabled her to support her young child, who is of school age.

As with all businesses, selling clothes requires a lot of investment in order toincrease sales, which is why she has turned to Ceprodel for a loan which will enable her to buy stock. With this loan, Meyling will be able to increase sales and thus continue to support and run her home which is so important to her.

Translated from Spanish by Lucy Williams, Kiva volunteer

La señora Meyling G. es originaria del municipio de San Rafael del Sur en Managua y se dedica al negocio de la venta de ropa en su propio establecimiento en su casa de habitación. Se dedica a esta labor desde hace tres años con el cual ha logrado mantener a su pequeño hijo en edad escolar.

Al igual que todo negocio, la venta de ropa requiere de mucha inversión para incrementar las ventas, por ello se refugia en Ceprodel para recibir el crédito oportuno que le permita adquirir la mercadería de su proveedores. Por medio de esta entrega se garantiza que la señora Meyling aumente sus ventas y así logre continuar con el mantenimiento de su hogar que tanto necesita de ella.
