Oneyda Esmeralda's story

Oneyda, a young woman of 28 years, is originally from Condega, in the municipal of Estelí. She is married, and a businesswoman who works selling cosmetics, clothes, and silver jewelry. This business started thanks to the support of her aunt who helped her with capital and merchandise so that she could make sales, and renew her own capital and generate income for herself. In addition to this, she is studying in the university, so she saves part of her income to pay her university. She took out the loan in order to purchase merchadise such as cosmetics, clothes, and shoes to sell and to stock her small store. Because the sales in the months of December and January are very good, she wants to take advantage of the season. One of her dreams is to have her own place and develop herself as a successful professional.
