A loan of $1,100 helped to buy footwear, clothing, and cosmetics.

Reyna Luz's story

Reyna is single with a nuclear family of four, her husband and two adult children. She's from the town of Tisma in the department of Masaya.

Reyna has been a merchant for nine years, which has served her well because currently she has her own customers in the neighboring country of Costa Rica. She exports all styles of footwear, which she buys in the Masaya town market. Sometimes she also takes orders for handmade clothing. She travels every two weeks. Sales are better there; she gets more income and demand is high.

She's asking CEPRODEL for a loan to buy the merchandise she needs because she's already getting requests for the upcoming season. She's going to buy sandals, running shoes, men's and women's pants, blouses, underwear, cosmetics, and t-shirts. She has some of it but needs more, and she wants to have stock because footwear will become too expensive to buy here.

She thinks the help from CEPRODEL is good because the interest is low and it also helps support her business. This way she can give her family a decent life.
