A loan of $625 helped to stock her beauty products business.

Guadalupe Mariela's story

Doña Guadalupe Mariela, a native of Masaya, has operated her retail business for three years. Her immediate family includes three others. Her neighbors consider her to be honest and hard-working.

The majority of her customers live in Masaya and work in the local market. She buys some of the products she sells in Costa Rica and the rest in Nicaragua. She sells a range of products, some from Avon and Zermat. She is an enterprising woman with a strong drive to grow her business.

Doña Guadalupe Mariela is applying to Ceprodel for a loan that she will use to buy products--makeup, perfumes, silver jewelry and women's clothing--to stock her business. The investment will allow her to cover existing orders and meet future demand. She says that the loan will help her to increase her income and, in turn, better provide for her family.
