Aracely Del Carmen's story

Araceli del Carmen Ríos is 32 years old. She lives in the Memorial Sandino neighborhood in the capital of Managua. She has two children, aged 6 and 9, who study for better lives and wellbeing. Her business is in the sales of milk products, sodas, candies and cosmetics like a small general store. She started this business with money that her husband gave her and with financing from Afodenic. This is her tenth cycle, and she has been able to invest in her business to supply it and increase her sales. Her husband has two trucks from which he sells sand, gravel and quarry rock and makes trips to obtain them, so everything is profit. Araceli will invest this loan in the purchase of basic grains and cosmetic goods to offer her customers a variety of products, which she hopes will increase her sales and outcome. Her plan is to continue constructing her house to give a decent home to her family.
