Miladys's story

Miladys is a humble, 57-year-old woman originally from Juigalpa, Chontales, who currently lives in Managua. She’s married and the mother of three children, all independent now. She’s a merchant by occupation; she sells groceries and clothes. She started her business with her own capital, money she earned working as a teacher, but then decided to resign from her job and sell clothes full-time. But she did not do well and she failed which is why today she only works in the grocery store which generates better income. Her son helps her with her business.

She is asking for financing to buy notebooks, pencils, grocery items, backpacks, basic grains, etc. She feels that it will help her stock her business because demand for school supplies rises during the school season so sales will increase. Her future plan is to open an eatery to sell food. Her next goal is to make her business grow and expand the site where she has her business.
