María Lorena's story

Maria C. is from the community of Cinco Pinos in the El Espino region of the Departament of Chinandega, Nicaragua.

Maria owns her own small grocery store, and is asking for a loan in order to invest in stocking her store with a greater variety of products. She will buy rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, boxes of soap, and candies in order to increase her earnings. This will benefit her family's well-being and will allow her to move ahead with her business venture.
