Jazmina De Los Angel
View original language description ↓
Jazmina sells clothing and various shoes both by traveling and in her house. Sometimes, she also sells clothes that she herself makes; she hopes to be able to strengthen her clothing production business. The business is 6 years old and since she began the business, she is most affected by the low sales that she has in some seasons. She is 30 years old, is a single mother of a son, who is in elementary school. She lives in the Sabana Grande area, which is a remote area near the city of Managua. Previously, Jazmina rented a room in her house, and with the income she earned, she was able to begin selling clothes and shoes. Her plans are to be able to increase her clientele through more sales. As a result, the loan she is requesting will be used to buy pants, shirts, and intimate apparel for women. In this way, it will be invested into her business.

Jazmina se dedica a la venta ambulante y en su casa de habitación de ropa y zapatos variados. En ocasiones también vende ropa que ella misma confecciona y espera poder fortalecer el negocio de la confección. Tiene 6 años y medio de haber empezado el negocio, en lo que la mayoría de las veces lo que más le afecta son las ventas bajas que en algunas temporadas se dan. Tiene 30 años de edad, es madre soltera de un hijo que se encuentra en educación primaria. Habita en la comarca Sabana Grande, un lugar alejado de la ciudad de Managua. Anteriormente Jazmina alquilaba una habitación en su vivienda, y con los ingresos obtenidos pudo empezar las ventas de ropa y zapato. Sus planes son poder aumentar la clientela a través de más ventas, es por eso que el crédito solicitado lo usará para la compra de pantalones, camisas y ropa de interior de damas, y así invertirlo en su negocio.
