Adriana Azucena's story

Adriana Azucena is 33 years old. She has been a merchant for 12 years. With her husband's help, they have gotten ahead. She is from the Masaya department and started her business in her house. She says she is seeking the way to be the kind of entrepreneur she wants to be. Her husband's family used to sell fried pork and yucca, but they stopped selling it. Then her husband proposed to her that the y continue with the business but between the two of them. Now she also sells perishable items (fruits and vegetables) and she also goes out to sell Avon and Zermat products and silver jewelry. She works at the store in the morning and goes out to offer her products to regular customers that she has in the afternoons.

She came to our Ceprodel offices to ask for a loan to re-stock her business. She will buy Coca-Cola, snacks, fruits and vegetables, jewelry, games, 100 kg of sugar, 100 kg. of rice, and more. She will keep on working at what she likes the most and be able to have a better quality of life for her family.
