Mirna Maria's story

Mirna María is a single mother with three minor children in her care, whom she has managed to raise and educate on her own. She begins her work day at 7:00am, and finishes at 5:00pm. She started her business as a street vendor selling plastic bags, with 2,000 cordobas in working capital that she had saved. Previously she used to travel to Guatemala to buy clothing at wholesale.

She is using the loan to buy plastic bags, dark plastic, plates, glasses, spoons, disposable cups etc. In this way she will manage to obtain better earnings and improve the quality of life for her and her children.

Mirna is very thankful to Ceprodel, as it has helped her add to her inventory; and succeed in increasing both her earnings and her clientele, as well as her quality of life.
