Martha Odili's story

Sra. Martha C. is 49 years old and open to increasing the productivity of her business, as well as achieving her goals and objectives. Ever since she was young woman, Martha has worked for herself and currently operates a store that sells groceries and other products. She now has assets that she can leave to her children and grandchildren. One of her goals is to finish making improvements to her home. She needs to plaster and paint the walls of her house to give it a nicer appearance. Another goal is to grow and expand her business so that she can generate better revenues. Martha lives in one of the poor neighborhoods of Managua where danger is ever present.

She started this business so that she could have her own income and satisfy the necessities of her household. When she encounters difficulties along the way, she lacks the capital to increase her inventory. With this loan from AFODENIC, she will buy products for her business such as basic grains, candy, sodas, and canned goods in order to improve her sales. In the short term, she wants to buy display cases for her store so that she can provide better service. This addition will provide adequate shelving along with the tables she already owns for displaying products. Martha desires to accomplish everything, and she can make these changes because loans are available to support small businesses.
