Felipa Anastasia's story

Felipa Anastasia has a business selling natural sodas, and cold sodas and water. She starts preparing her sodas from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., after which she leaves to sell them on foot in the streets of the city of León, Nicaragua.

She has been doing this work for 21 years to help her husband support the household. She is requesting a loan which she will use to buy oranges, pineapples, gourd seeds, harvested cacao, sugar, soft drinks, water and cinnamon for the production of her delicious natural sodas which are a delicacy to delight her customers with. She also offers cold soft drinks and waters, and pastries.

Felipa Anastasia has improved her quality of life and that of her family since, with the income she obtained from the loans she was offered by Ceprodel, she was able to remodel her humble home, making it more comfortable for her family.
