Danelia's story

Danelia is 60 years old and comes from Chinandega, but now lives in Managua. She has 4 children, of whom only the youngest who is studying at university is still in her care. She has a small grocery store, where she began selling sweets, cookies, soda and ice cream. Later it grew little by little, and after 9 years of operating the store she now sells groceries, cleaning products and items for household use which are sold by the unit. She is looking for financing to buy basic grains, milk, eggs, butter, bread, juice, soad, canned goods, soup and batteries. Her products have a high turnover and in her business she must sell products in order not to lose either customers or income. One of her plans is to have a small storeroom where she can store wholesale products and be able to handle price increases in products. She sells for cash and on credit. She needs to invest in a greater variety of products at prices more accessible to her customers in order to meet their needs and this is why she wants to expand.
