Candida Rosa
View original language description ↓
Candida Rosa A. is a lady that makes living selling clothes which she does in her own stall at the municipal market of the City Sandino in Managua.

She started her business with little capital counting on her 3,000 cordobas (USD$ 157) from her savings and loans obtained from lenders. As time has passed, she has been able to stock her business with the support of the loans from Ceprodel, which she has used to buy merchandise and grow her business. Currently she needs to buy articles of clothing such as pants, shirts, etc. For this reason she hopes that her loan will be granted and she can continue her business of selling clothing and continue to improve the support of her home and enable her four children to continue their studies.

Translated from Spanish by Laura Bobbit, Kiva volunteer.

Candida Rosa A. es una dama que se dedica a la labor de venta de ropa que comercializa en su propio tramo en el mercado del municipio de Ciudad Sandino en Managua.

Inició su negocio con poco capital contando con C$ 3,000 (Tres mil córdobas) obtenidos por sus ahorros propios y préstamos realizados a prestamistas. A medida que ha venido transcurriendo el tiempo ha logrado surtir su negocio apoyándose de los créditos recibidos por CEPRODEL el cual los ha utilizado para la compra de la mercadería y ampliación del negocio. Hoy en día su necesidad es la compra de la ropa como pantalones, camisas, etc. Por esta razón es que espera en que su crédito le será otorgado para así continuar con su negocio de venta de ropa para continuar llevando el sustento a su casa de habitación y así sus cuatro hijos puedan continuar estudiando.
