María Salome
In the municipal market of Chichigalpa, María Salomé N. is very happily dedicated to attending her grocery store selling all types of products such as snacks, basic grains, brooms, and cleaning products, among other things.

In the beginning, it was difficult because eight years ago she decided to start the business and began selling only small quantities. Nevertheless, over time she improved her conditions and acquired greater quantities of products to sell. Today, the reason why she has sought out Ceprodel is to receive a loan that will allow her to purchase merchandise and continue her business in the market.

En el mercado municipal de Chichigalpa, la señora María Salomé N. se dedica a atender su pulpería muy alegremente vendiendo todo tipo de productos como lo son comestibles, granos básicos, escobas, productos de limpieza, entre otros.

Sus inicios fueros duros debido a que desde hace 8 años que decidió establecer el negocio, comenzó vendiendo pocas cantidades sin embargo a medida que el tiempo vino transcurriendo mejoró sus condiciones y adquirió mayores cantidades de productos para venderlos. Hoy en día la razón por la cual ha acudido a Ceprodel es para ser beneficiada con un crédito que le permita la compra de la mercadería para continuar en su negocio en el mercado.
