Jeaneth Del Carmen's story

Jeaneth is a young mother who is 27 years of age. She is an entrepreneur who is modest, yet she has tremendous desire to succeed. Jeaneth lives in La Esperanza, a small but productive region located in Yalaguina in the town of Estelí. Even though she is not married, she lives with the father of her child. Together they gathered their savings in order to start a grocery business in their town. There are few businesses of this type that exist, but there is a great need for them. Her business has grown gradually with the help of loans and by investing in products that have high consumer demand among the public. Her expectations for her store include being able to supply the basic needs of the region and expanding her inventory. Thanks to this business, Jeaneth has been able to raise her family and become an independent woman.

She is requesting a loan in order to buy basic grains, cookies, bread, candy, canned goods, soups, oil, soap, detergents, bleach, vegetables, and fruits. One of her goals is to begin purchasing construction materials so that she can build a home. She already has the land, but is lacking the materials to proceed with gradual construction. Jeaneth wants to have a decent home where her child can live.
