Emilia Elisabeth's story

Emilia is from Jinotega but lives in the capital city. She is 31-years-old, married, and a businesswoman who has owned her own grocery store for four years. She tells us that she began her business because she saw that the place where she lived was a really good place to open a grocery store as many local people pass by it, and thus she decided to invest her time and money in this business with the support of a family member. Four years ago she opened her grocery store, a business which has been a great advantage for her family and for the people who live in her area. Today she is requesting a loan to buy products like: dairy products, sodas, meats, canned goods, and grains. This loan will be very useful for adding more products that are in demand to her inventory for her customers, in this way increasing her sales and earnings. Her future plans are to improve her house and to turn her business into a larger shop that can serve the greater part of the area.
