Lucien Idalia
Lucien Idalia is 21 years of age, married, and has a 6-month-old baby. She originally came from a municipality in the north of Chinandega Department, which is located in the west of the country, a zone characterized by its commercial productivity, including cattle raising, agriculture and gold mining.
Lucien is a hard-working, honorable and responsible woman with a great desire for personal advancement. Due to a lack of economic resources, she failed to complete her studies. When Lucien was very young, she began working to help with household expenses.

That's why she decided to have her own business, using her own funds, the product of her savings. This is why she established a beautiful grocery store that offers consumer items for the home, such as: coffee, packets of shampoo, tomato sauce, rice, beans, juices, bread, eggs, salt, sugar, milk, detergents, pampers, toilet paper, Maggi soups, frozen products, soft drinks, and candy, among other items.

Her work day begins very early, opening the doors of her grocery store, an activity she enjoys. Her purchases are made from merchants and distributors in this local in cash. She has both fixed and casual customers.

The objective of this financing is to re-stock her business, purchasing home products such as: rice, beans, oil, frozen goods, sweets, firewood, bread, eggs, soft drinks, and juices, among other things. Her customer base has grown since she transferred her business to her home, which is why she needs to re-stock her inventory and, thus, offer a variety of products to her customers.
