Auxiliadora Delcarmen's story

Auxiliadora works as a merchant and is originally from Leon, Nicaragua. She makes a living selling food. She is 40 years old, married and has a son. She started her business 10 years ago selling food only on the weekends, but her clientele grew and at their request she started cooking more days so her customers could enjoy the rich food she prepares. Her sister and husband help her with the business, and she sells her products in her neighborhood and in the nearby communities. Her husband also contributes to the household income. Auxiliadora wants to continue with her business forever. She is requesting the loan to purchase products like bananas, cabbage, meat, cheese, onion and sweet peppers, all of which she needs to make her meals so she can satisfy her customers and purchase all the raw materials she needs for her business. Her plans for the future are to stay with the business so she can have more income and make headway for her family.
