Indiana Del Carmen's story

Indiana Del Carmen, age 42, is single and has three children, ages 7 (second grade), 9 (fourth grade), and 18 (University). She has two businesses. One of them is selling general merchandise like cosmetics, perfume, footwear, and others in an itinerant manner. The other is a grocery store, which she has at her house. The businesses are located in the Chinandega municipality, where her customer sales have been increasing. She has had this business for over 15 years. She started this business in order to be able to support her minor children. Also, she has always liked business. Indiana rises day to day in order to start another day in business. This way she is able to offer each one of her customers a variety of products. She is requesting this loan to invest more in her businesses. This is because her demand is greater than her supply. She wants to provide her customers with good service.
