Juana Del Carmen's story

Juana Del Carmen is 53 years old and has four children aged 18, 22, 28 and 32. At the moment, only one is studying. He is in the fifth year, and is in her care.

Juana del Carmen makes a living selling general merchandise door to door. She does this in the municipality of El Viejo in Chinandega. It is a city in which doughnuts are sold, and there is a mill mainly for sugar cane.

Little by little, Juana grew her business, which attracts customers and leaves them satisfied with her products. She starts work very early so that she can finish early and look after her home, since she is a single mother.

Juana is requesting this loan to invest more capital in her stock. She will purchase children's and adult's clothes, cosmetics, footwear, and other clothing, because she has the opportunity to sell more and make more profits and offer her customers the best as a result.
