Rebeca Fabiola's story

Rebeca, 27, is a native of the city of Managua. She is a single university student, and she is also the owner of a small grocery store that has been in business for 2 years. She started out selling fermented milk and ice cream. Over time, her neighbors were asking her if she could sell other food products, so she also started to sell soft drinks, snacks and juices. Because she lives close to an elementary school, she decided to expand her store gradually by adding school supplies and additional food items. Rebeca shares her activities in the business with her mother and a sister.

Rebeca is requesting a loan to buy basic grains, dairy products, cleaning products, school supplies and cosmetics. This investment will allow her to stock up her business with more products so that it is more appealing to her customers. One of her plans is to start selling books such as dictionaries, history books and encyclopedias.
