Francisca Jamileth's story

Francisca, 35 years of age, originally from Boaco but currently living in Managua, parent of 2 children who are 13 and 15 years old, works as a vendor engaged in food sales, and has been a proprietor for more than a year.

She began her work activity at the age of 34 years with her own capital, as she needed a way to survive and bring up her family. So she decided to start her own business selling food. She feels very happy because the business brings in money daily. She has the help of her partner in the business, and from other proceeds and other remittences sent from relatives abroad.

Francisca is asking for a loan to buy rice, beans, oil, chicken, meat and at the same time one display case. She thinks that this loan will help her buy a food showcase and has the idea of attracting more customers in order to get higher earnings. In the future she plans to improve the infrastructure of her business in order to create a better appearance.
