Maria Adilia's story

Maria Adilia, 24, is married and has a six-month-old son. She lives with her family in a community called Cerro Grande which is located in Yalaguina, in the department of Madriz. Some time ago, like all women entrepreneurs, she had to seek her fortune outside of her community and went to the city of Managua where whe was a domestic employee. After a while she returned to her community and got married. She and her husband decided to use a small amount of capital to set up a store, which is now a bit larger. She has requested a loan to buy basic grains and other grocery items. In the future she would like to improve her house and buy household goods to improve her son's lifestyle.
