A loan of $300 helped work capital.

Sofia Mercedes's story

Sofia Mercedes V. A. is 56 years old. For a living she has been renting out chairs for 7 years. Previously she worked as a teacher but becase of her advanced age she was laid off, but as she is responsible for her son being father and mother at the same time, she needed to find another way of providing for him economically. Therefore she decided to set up the chair rental business. She started with only 50 chairs but with the help of the loans the number increased. The money requested is for work capital to buy chairs and plastic tables. She also travels to Managua as it is more favorable. It is her wish to continue with her business as it is her only source of income.
