Rosa Argentina's story

Rosa Argentina is married and has three children who are now married. She is an honest, hard-working person who sells new clothes and various cosmetics. She lives in the tourist municipality of San Rafael del Sur. It is southwest of Managua, which is the capital of Nicaragua and the center of the Americas.

She is 58 years old, and she has a great spirit for self-improvement. She started her own business five years ago thanks to the money she received from a job settlement. She was a worker for a cement producing company.

Nevertheless, in looking to get better living conditions, and to provide her customers with better service, she is requesting a loan from our institution. She will use the loan to buy clothing and cosmetics for her business. She will buy things like blouses, t-shirts, children’s outfits, underwear, and perfume for men and women.
