Vilma Del Carmen's story

Vilma has managed to have her own business and feels satisfied in that she is able to be an independent woman. She has 2 children who are in school in order to have a better future. Her husband is a lawyer and they have been making improvements to their house. She has had a business selling food and drinks for a number of years. With the help of her husband and loans she has managed to make her sales grow. The sale of food requires a lot of capital in order to make a varied menu and gain clients, as well as to buy tables, chairs, utensils, etc. With this loan she wants to invest in the purchase of staple grains, dairy products, meat, chicken, fruit, candies, and soft drinks among other products, to prepare the rich dishes and to continue to strengthen her small eatery for a better future for her family. This financing allows Vilma and many other Nicaraguans to have the opportunity to grow as responsible women working for their families.
