Margarita De La Concepcion's story

Margarita is a 22-year-old native of Granada, Nicaragua. She is married and makes a living running a convenience store that she started on her own because she wanted to be independent. Previously she was employed at a private company, and from the severance she received she decided to start her own business in her home, where her mother helps her with the business' daily purchases. Her husband is employed and supports the household finances. Margarita feels satisfied with her business because she has regular customers and it is profitable, generating daily income. She plans to use the loan to purchase soft drinks, milk, cheese, rice, bread, soap and other items, all of which are necessary products to stock her store. She hopes it will be a help and allow her to increase her inventory with the products in highest demand from her customers. Her plans for the future are to expand the size of her business and to diversify her products to keep her store active and make headway for her family.
