Candida Rosa's story

Cándida, 50 years old, is originally from Chontales, but currently lives in Managua. She is married and a mother to 4 children, all independent, and is a merchant by trade. She sells a variety of merchandise. She started in business 18 years ago selling various products using her own capital, money she had saved. In this way, she was able to establish her own business selling various products such as soft drinks, bread, juice, milk, toilet paper, and soap. She is satisfied with it because she has succeeded in increasing her sales. In this way, she has been able to move forward with the earnings that her business generates daily. Her daughter helps her with the business. Her expectation is to expand the business with various merchandise that she does not already have in her inventory.

The school season is approaching, and this is why she is asking for the loan to buy pencils, notebooks, rulers, erasers, backpacks, school uniform skirts, etc. She thinks that with the loan she will be able to buy all the school supplies she needs for this season, with the goal of making her business grow in order to have extra earnings and to be able to keep her business stable and profitable.
