Eladia Marisela's story

Eladia, who is 36 years old, is originally from Boaco. She is married and has two children, aged 12 and 16 years old, who are currently studying. She is a businesswoman and has a small store.

She started in the business when she was 30 years old, selling used clothes as a street peddler. Later, with the savings she had, she decided to launch another business: her small store. With effort, she has been able to strengthen her sales by investing in basic products for the business she had for three years. She has the support of her husband who helps with the administration of the store. When she has some spare time, she goes to sell used clothes to the closest regions to the community.

Her expectation is to have more merchandise for her business in order to increase sales. She needs a loan to buy products such as snacks, milk, toothpaste, toilet paper, rice, soap, sugar, etc. She estimates that this loan will help because she will be able to stock the store with the most requested products by customers. Her future plans are to expand her premises. Her goal is continue working in the business, make more profits, pay off the loan to request another one and get ahead with her family.
