Clara del Socorro is dedicated to making shoes. She has a small workshop in her home and two workers. She sells her product in the Masaya market to shops who buy at wholesale prices. She has various years' experience in this business. She offers shoes to men and sandals to women. With the loan, she bought paste, leather, soles, etc. She has four adult children who help her in the shop. They study and work. Her husband helps her with the bills. She dreams of improving her workshop so she can work well in the winter.

María Damaris C. is a young mother with two adolescent children. They study at a school close to their house. She dreams of seeing them finish their studies and to improve their little house. She is dedicated to selling fruit and produce in the Masaya market where she has many customers. She has been dedicated to this type of work from a young age and knows this business well. Her husband helps her with the bills.

Carlos José sells perishable items in the Managua East market. He has been dedicated to this activity, which he learned from his mother, for more than five years. He has done this work since he married. He works every day from the early hours and returns in the afternoon hours to make purchases. His wife works alongside him. He has a small son who studies in the area's school.

They live in humble living conditions. They came to work with Adim due to a promotion made in the region and they liked this form of working because they had no guarantees that they would be given a loan but Adim trusted them.
