A loan of $225 helped to buy seafood, in general.


Virginia's story

Virginia is a seafood vender. She has contributed to the economic development of her family for many [years]. She sells this kind of product in an itinerant fashion, going house to house. She needs a source of financing to distribute this product in different channels of distribution such as bars and restaurants in the city of Managua, and thus increase her earnings.

Before starting her business she was a cook at a tourist location in the city of San Rafael del Sur. She has a domestic partner and is the mother of two children, both school aged.
