Eulalia Modesta's story

Eulalia Modesta Mayorca is 50 years old, married, and has five children. Her children are 32, 30, 26 and 24. Only her youngest daughter lives at home, and she helps her mother with the business. Eulalia’s mate works as a mason. Eulalia intents to continue the modest economic activity at which she has worked for years and she wishes to keep that business running. She hopes that she might continue for a good while in order that her family might prosper. She would like to travel abroad with her husband so that they might enjoy themselves while they can. She dreams that her workshop might excel at making uniforms, and ladies and men’s formalwear, because her customers prefer quality.

Eulalia has been in the sewing business for ten years, working both door-to-door and out of her home. Eulalia began this business by purchasing sewing supplies, and she started out making children’s clothing. Doing so, she was able to earn income to support her family. Her family gradually plowed money back into the business until it was to the point it is today. At present Eulalia is requesting a loan for working capital in order to purchase ladies, mens and children’s wear. She makes her purchases in Managua, running around town in search of whatever is best for her business.
