Rita Elena
Rita, age 40, is from the municipality of Camoapa but has lived in Managua for five years. She has four children who are all in school. She used to work for a woman in the market, but took out a loan three years ago from someone in order to start her own business selling food and drinks. This is her only source of income. She is still doing this work. She wants to get her product out there. She makes her sales from her home, which she rents.
She is requesting this loan with the goal of purchasing products such as rice, beans, vegetables, oil, meat, and chicken, for making food.
She believes that she will get better prices and be able to sell more if she buys these products wholesale. Her goal is to open a savings account and buy her own storefront. In the future she wants to sell clothing from her home. She works with her sister, who is her only support.
