Igdania Ernestina's story

Ms. Igdania is the owner of a grocery store where she sells a wide variety of products like basic food staples, detergents, soft drinks, cosmetics, and clothes. Igdania is single. She needs a loan in order to have capital for her work and to improve the condition of her business by increasing her sales. She will use the loan to purchase basic food staples like rice, sugar, beans and oil.

Before beginning this business she worked in a hotel along the Pacific coast in Nicaragua. However, when she found herself laid off, she came up with the idea of the business, which currently allows her to be an economic contributor for her family.
