Rosa Elena
Rosa, 44, is married living with her husband and son in the town of Choloma, Cortes. Three and a half years ago Rosa started her own grocery store where she sells basic staples like vegetables, grains, sugar, lard, bread, condiments, flour, eggs, etc. She also earns additional income selling nacatamales [Nicaraguan-style tamales] that she makes on weekends to order.

She’s asking for a new 20,000 Lempira loan to buy more foodstuffs to keep her grocery store well-stocked. She’s gotten six loans counting this one from ODEF which have helped her increase sales and to have more demand. Her idea is to continue growing and always have a source of income to support her family.
