Rubenia Del Socorro
View original language description ↓
Rubenia’s business is located in her own home. It is a general store that she has run with great energy for the past ten years. The store is located in the city of Chinandega in the Somotillo zone.

Rubenia has three school-aged children and she is very proud that they are excellent students. She feels committed to continuing to improve her business in order to support her children.

In order to reach this goal she has contacted Ceprodel to request a loan that will allow her to purchase more product. She feels satisfied that her previous loans have allowed her to improve her economic condition and have helped her meet her children’s needs. Currently she needs to purchase more product for her store in order to obtain better earnings.
