A loan of $725 helped to buy used shoes to sell.


Celidey Del Socorro's story

Celidey’s business consists of selling used shoes. She sells the shoes from her house just outside of Managua and also from the central market in Jinotepe, which is roughly 20 minutes away. She is requesting a loan from CEPRODEL to buy more shoes. The shoes all arrive from the United States. People want the shoes that look new, she said, so before putting them in the store she scrubs all the shoes until they look as clean as possible.

Celidey has been in the shoe business for six years now. This is her first loan with CEPRODEL. She is hoping the loan will help her increase her inventory and thus increase the size of her business. Celidey is 37 years old. She married with two daughters. Both of her daughters, ages 13 and 17, are in school.
