Leida Del Socorro's story

Leida comes from the town of Catarina (Pueblos Blacos) of the department of Masaya. She's 57 years old and has owned her own business for 31 years. Her business is a carpentry workshop, a trade she inherited from her parents. They're the ones who have taught her to make a living ever since she was young, and today, thanks to them, she has a means of livelihood. Leida currently has her husband to keep her company, since her four children are independent adults. She's known for being a hardworking, honorable woman. Most of her customers are established in León and they make their sales in that same town's municipal market. Leida commutes to that area to deliver the orders. She sells all kinds of products, and, if she isn't able to manufacture an order, she goes to various sellers in Catarina and San Juan de Oriente so that she can meet that order. Leida currently needs a loan in order to meet several orders. She needs to purchase merchandise consisting of three dining room sets, four television racks and furniture carts. That way she'll be able to meet the orders and provide a better service. This will help her to obtain better profits for her business and to increase her earnings in order to make a decent living alongside her family.
