Cristina's story

Cristina is 63 years old, married, mother to two adult children, and a native of the city of Esteli. She is dedicated to attending a grocery store. She has 10 years with this business, which she started when she sold only dairy products. With the income, she bought other consumable products until she managed to form her small grocery store. With a lot of effort she has moved ahead. The loan she is requesting is to buy milk, butter, cream, cheese, yogurt, juices, snacks, oil, basic grains, sugar, toothpaste, sodas, eggs, bread, cookies, etc. With the loan, she will be able to buy more products that her customers request on a daily basis. Her next goal is to stock her business more and expand the space where it is located.
