G.s. Sol Naciente Group's story

Sra. Yanilda Del Carmen, 30, is married and has 3 children who are 12-, 7- and 3-years old, respectively. She operates a business buying and selling gold and silver. She works as a street vendor, mostly in free-trade zones, selling on credit and collecting in 30 days. She has operated the business for 13 years. She is applying for a loan that she will use to buy gold and silver. Sra. Candida Rosa, 26, is married and has four young children. She operates a corner shop in her house. She will use her loan to expand the stock of goods she sells--a little of everything, she says--and, in turn, increase her earnings. Yesica Del Soccorro, 27, has a 4-year old daughter. Her husband works as a security guard in Managua. She operates a business, working as a street vendor, selling new and used clothing. She has operated the business for 5 years. She started the business with her savings, with only a small amount of merchandise at first, and building from there. Another member is Josefina Elizabeth, 26. Josefina is married--her husband is a bus driver--with, as yet, no children. She operates a business selling fruits and vegetables at the Mercado Oriental in Managua. She has operated the business in the market for two years. She started the business with savings. Her husband provided the push to start the business because they needed a larger income to support themselves. For that reason, they combined forces to improve the earnings from her business.
