Allison Joseph's story

Allison Joseph, 34, is single and from Chinandega. She’s a tenacious person who started her business thanks to her mother aiming at helping with household expenses. She started on her own initiative to sell general merchandise consisting in children’s and adults’ clothing, pants, shirts, dresses, shorts, skirts, underwear, silver, gold and cosmetics, among others. She does all this from place to place and to order. She usually sells on credit to both regular and occasional customers. Allison has had the business for 10 years now and she’s gradually been able to grow because her clientele has increased. The financing she’s asking for is to invest in working capital and stock her business with the purchase of merchandise thus meeting customer needs.
