Imelda's story

Imelda Suárez Martínez is 73 years of age and her civil state is single. Doña Imelda has four children and they are all working. Imelda's economic activity is the sales of used clothing. Since three years ago she has been dedicated to this business. Doña Imelda began working on her own. The most effective thing for her has been making sales from house to house, as well as having a room in her house for certain articles of clothing so that her clients can come to her home, and this has been the activity that she likes best. Imelda proposes to keep her clients and provide them with what they request. The financing that Imelda requests is for working capital since she has to travel to León or Managua and in this way obtain the favored clothing. Imelda's dream is to establish a space with the necessary conditions for displaying her products.
