Maria Esperanza
María is 57 years old, a business woman and mother of five children who lives in the city of Managua. She is the owner of a food stand, and sells drinks too in a small grocery store. She started out selling soft drinks, cookies and sweets. She was saving in order to buy other types of products that her customers themselves asked for and this is how the little store got its start.

Later she decided to invest also in the sale of food taking advantage of her competence in the kitchen. She does this work in the evenings while one of her daughters helps with the grocery store. She divides her time between these two activities that she begins in the early morning hours and finishes at around 10:00PM in the evening when she finishes selling food.

She needs financing to buy rice, beans, sugar, oil, bananas, vegetables, fruit, and packaging for the meals. This will help her invest in products for her grocery store and food stand. Her plan is to be established with improved conditions for her food stand and to expand her grocery store because the convenience for her customers is of prime importance to her because they are keeping her in business.
