A loan of $300 helped purchase fruits and vegetables.


Paula Elvira's story

Paula M. fully dedicates herself to the sale of her fruits and vegetables in the wholesale market of Managua. She sells avocadoes, lemons, sapotes, and apples, among others.

Her job is very demanding as she sells her wares throughout the market streets and often succumbs to fatigue caused by constant exposure to the sun and she gets tired from walking all day long. She is requesting this loan to purchase more avocadoes, lemons, and sapotes (a soft, edible fruit) so she can continue selling these and increase her income.
