Zaida Del Carmen's story

Zaida, married, is 57 years old. She is the owner of her own business making military boots, and has been doing this for 34 years. She lives in the department of Masaya.

She came to our offices to ask for a new loan to buy raw material as she already has orders. Her points of sales are a distribution point in the east and sales in the Masaya city market.

She thinks that this loan will help her increase her sales and improve her quality of life.
