Evelia Del Carmen's story

Evelia del Carmen is a hardworking and entrepreneurial 48-year-old woman. For 20 years she has sold fruits and vegetables in the market in Masaya. She started out selling bananas; she observed how the market worked and began to buy what was in season because it's cheapest.

She has 8 children but only two are still in her care; one is 22 and is in their final year studying banking and finance, the other is 10 and in primary school.

Evelia will invest the loan in the mamon harvest.
