Ileana's story

Ileana is 34, married, and the mother of three children. She is a young inhabitant of the Chinandega department, located in the west of the country. Ileana is a hardworker and a fighter in life to get her kids ahead and give them a better future. She wants to give them the opportunities that she unfortunately did not have because of a lack of economic resources. She also would like to support her husband in paying for the household expenses.

Although would have liked to study for a professional career, her job is selling general merchandise such as jewelry, school supplies, decorations, and clothing for adults, young adults, and children. She decided to begin this business five years ago. Now, she is requesting a loan because she needs to invest more in her business and be able to meet the demand of her customers. She plans on purchasing merchandise including children’s clothing, shoes, and cosmetics.
