Cristina Del Rosario
Cristina, who is 42-years old, is a native of Managua. She lives with her partner and is the mother of three children. Due to her family's poor financial situation, she was only able to complete five years of primary school. She currently works as a shopkeeper; she owns a small grocery store. She started in the same business field, selling pastries. But she needed a way to subsist and generate income for herself. Today, with a lot of effort and hard work, she has made her business a success. With the earnings generated from her pastry sales, Cristina was able to start another business, her small grocery store. Cristina feels quite satisfied with her store because it makes her money every day. She has the support of her children. And she has another source of income too, the money she earns teaching pastry-making.
Cristina's hope is to continue growing her business. She needs the loan to purchase basic supplies like rice, beans, corn, sugar, cooking oil, cosmetics and clothing. She has as a goal expanding her business and improving her store's appearance in order to attract more customers. In the future, she plans to establish another business, a "fritanga" (selling local dishes of fried food).
