Sara Amparo
Sara Amparo lives in the city of Managua. She describes herself as a hardworking woman who has always worked. Her work day begins at 5 in the morning at a stretch of wholesale markets in the capital, where she takes the goods that she sells.

Sara asks for a loan to invest in buying a crop of mango and jocote (a native fruit), since it is almost La Semana Santa ("Holy Week"). During this time, her sales increase because these are some of the fruits that nicaraguans commonly use to make a traditional syrup that is made for holy days.
