Nicolasa Candelaria's story

Nicolasa is a 53-year-old married woman. Her husband works as a bricklayer, and with his modest income he helps with the household expenses. All of their children are now independent and married.

For the past 11 years, Nicolasa has had a business selling new clothing and other items in one of the markets in Managua. She uses her loans for working capital to invest in new clothing, and she will use this twelfth loan for the same purpose, buying a variety of clothing for men, women and children. This will include shirts, pants, blouses and other items so that she can increase her income and help her husband to cover all the household expenses and continue to make progress.
