Maria Dolores's story

Maria Dolores Z. was born in the city of Managua. She is 37 years old, and has a partner who works as a mechanic. She helps him on a casual basis with the household expenses. She has 2 school-aged children who are 16 and 11 years old. Both of them are currently in school, and the older one also helps her to sell beauty products after school. She is a street vendor who sells beauty products and lottery tickets, and this has been her source of income for over 4 years.

She started selling these products thanks to the support of other loans. Now she requests a new loan to continue investing in her business, by purchasing new products that will allow her to increase her sales volume and improve the finances of her family.
