Carmen Patricia's story

Carmen is originally from Masaya, she is 41 years old and has been in business 16 years, selling National lottery tickers. She inherited the business from her parents since they were also in the same kind of sales. She is looking for a way to improve her situation because she already owns a small business selling cosmetic products and other personal products. She sells at different locations in Masaya like Catarina and Granada in order to give her family a better quality of life. She is a single mother who is in charge of two children. She is the one who needs to take care of her home, but she is proud of her family and doesn't feel she is missing anything. One of her main goals is to improve her home since the roof is deteriorating and she needs to replace it. This is why she is applying for a loan with Ceprodel, she will use it to purchase zinc sheets, iron, rafters and pay for the labor. Carmen is happy to be able to obtain these things and in this way improve her home's level of comfort and be able to give a better quality of life to her children.
