Martha Lorena's story

Martha Lorena is a merchant at one of the markets of the city of León. She leaves her home at 6:00 a.m. to start her work at 7:00 a.m., finishing up at 5:00 p.m. She follows this same schedule from Monday through Saturday. She travels to Managua twice a week to buy her merchandise. She does this work to support her two children, since she is a single mother.

She will use the loan she is requesting from Ceprodel to buy new products which are in fashion, such as shampoo, creams, beauty items, nail polish, lipstick, perfumes, headbands, hair clips, ponytail holders and purses. This will allow her to attract more customers and increase her sales and earnings to support her family.

Her dream is to see that her children earn degrees and become professionals in the future.
