A loan of $225 helped the loan is going to be invested in the purchase of lottery tickets for resale.


Ana Luz's story

Sra. Ana A.U. sells lottery tickets on an itinerant basis in the Israel Lewite market in Managua. Ana wants to use the loan to but lottery tickets.


Her business began when Ana started selling on foot in the market. Seeing that her sales were increasing she decided to sell “raspadita”, a lottery ticket in which the surface is scratched with a coin or key, and “chalupa” , another type of lottery ticket. She works each day from 8 in the morning until 6 in the evening.


She hopes that with this loan her business will grow more and, thus, have greater earnings.
Ana is a single mother with a daughter in university. This is the eighth loan that Ana has had with CEPRODEL. She has worked with CEPRODEL for 2 years. Ana says that her loans with CEPRODEL have helped her a lot. They are the reasons why her business has sustained itself and is on a more solid footing.
