Nelly Carmita's story

In Lodana, which is in Santa Ana Canton, the people earn their livings in agriculture. They plant corn and rice and raise livestock. The local cuisine consists of a variety of typical dishes.

Nelly is 52-years old. She is married and has three grown children who live on their own. Nelly's husband is a freight truck driver.

Nelly earns her living selling a variety of brands of clothing from a catalog. She sells the clothing to family members, friends and customers who are referred to her. Nelly leaves her items on credit and collects payments on a weekly basis. She also sells ice-cream, which she purchases from a distributor who sells to her on credit and collects payment on a weekly basis.

With this new loan, Nelly will purchase clothing and ice cream in a variety of flavors. Nelly's dream is to open an ice-cream shop.
