Maritza Magda
Maritza E. has three lovely children. Her daughter is married, and the other two go to school to get a good education. With her husband’s help, they hope to be able to give them the support for their studies. Her husband is a nurse, and he has worked for the Nicaraguan Air Force for 15 years. It is steady work, but his salary is low. Therefore, for 10 years Maritza has been selling glasses, cell accessories, bags, hats, wallets, and a variety of accessories. She is a street vendor at a stoplight. She does this to pay the expenses of food, water, light, and education. She started her sales with a little money that her husband gave her. Everyday she went to the stoplight. Now she is located on Linda Vista in front of the Unión supermarket. She takes advantage of the customers who come to buy. There is less danger from accidents on the road and robberies. She is in the sun less, and she is selling more.

That is why she wants to use this loan to buy more glasses, hats, TV remote controls, Christmas hats, mechanical pencils, and other things that help her generate more sales in her business.

Her plan is to be able to keep building her house to be able to live in a decent house with her loved ones.

She is grateful to the institution for the economic support to invest in her small business.
