Adilia Azucena's story

Adilia is a modest woman of 63. She is from Concepción in Masaya department, but she has been residing in Managua for 52 years. A widow, she only completed primary school. She is the mother of four adult children and is a merchant. She has a small general store business.

As a result of her husband's passing, she started in business three years ago, selling homemade fruit drinks, ices and ice cream. She felt alone and without income. That is why she decided to launch a general store business which has turned out to be very profitable. It generates more income, enabling her to support herself and her family. She gets her daughter's help with the business, and has other income such as the widow's pension that she receives. She hopes to expand her general store.

She is applying for the loan to buy rice, sugar, beans, cooking oil, pens, notebooks, soft drinks, etc. These are all the products she needs to stock her general store even more, as she believes that this loan would help her increase her inventory, with the aim of increasing her sales to obtain better earnings. One of her goals is to equip her store's infrastructure to improve its appearance.
