Paula Aidalina
Nagarote, a municipality of León, saw Paula, a married woman of 47 with three independent children, depart. She left her place of birth to look for a better working opportunity in the capital. On arriving in Managua, she used without hesitation the savings obtained as an itinerant vendor of curdled cheese, cheese, and milk in her town in order to establish her grocery store, which has already been in existence for 10 years.

Paula only had the opportunity to reach the second grade of primary school. Nevertheless, this has not hindered her entrepreneurial spirit, and with the help of her husband, who has worked as a security guard for 15 years, they have managed to advance. Her home town is always present, because she dreams of going back to set up her grocery store there, in addition to selling food. To do that, she needs the loan to invest in her business, to buy rice, soap, toilet paper, and other products to vary her merchandise, in such a way that she can increase her income and finish with the loans in order to invest in her house.
