Gioconda Isabel
Gioconda, who is 39 years old, is a single mother. She has a 16-year-old son, who is in his fourth year of secondary school. Both live in the city of Managua. Her work is selling food, especially breakfasts and lunches, in addition to tending a grocery store.

She began her business at the age of 35. She began selling food because the people who worked across the street from her house asked her for food and inquired about it, and so she decided to invest in a food business at home. A short time afterwards, she began her grocery store business, since the people who came to her business were looking for products that are highly used in homes, and grocery store businesses are very scarce in this area. For this reason, she now has her grocery store, which her only son helps her tend, and she works in the food business.

She needs financing to buy soft drinks, rice, oil, cleaning products, oats, canned goods, and soups. This will allow her to have more inventory of products that are highly sold in her grocery store. One of her goals is to improve the infrastructure of her business and that of her home.
