Aurora is fifty years old, is married, and is a shopkeeper. She has been the owner of her own grocery store for eighteen years, and is originally from Managua. She is the mother of four children. She studied through primary school, but her economic situation did not allow her to complete her studies.

She began this type of work when she was thirty-two years old and with her own capital that she had saved up from a previous job selling bulk grains. She realized that selling bulk grains did not generate a lot of income, and so she decided to leave that business and to only dedicate herself to her grocery store.

Aurora says that she feels good about her current situation; she has regular customers and her business is very profitable and generates a daily income. She also has the support of her husband in her business. She has other sources of income too, like the taxi service that her husband offers.

She is requesting this financing in order to buy general merchandise, like rice, sugar, sardines, crackers, canned items like tuna, plastic glasses, plates, beer, etc. Her objective is to offer other types of products to her customers while still having the basic products that she offers every day in her business.

One of her future plans is to continue fighting every day in order to continue growing her business.
