Concepcion's story

54-year old Concepción is affectionately called Conchita by her friends. She is married and comes from the department of Chinandega. She is known as a hardworking, responsible woman with a great desire to make something of herself. 26 years ago she decided to open a business as a way to earn money to live on.

Through her strong desire to get ahead she managed to open a small store in her house where she sells groceries in small quantities such as coffee, shampoo, tomato sauce, rice, beans, juice, bread, eggs, salt, sugar and milk. In her store Concepción also sells basic grains, frozen items, candy etc. She is very popular in her neighbourhood as she is very friendly, something that has helped her a great deal and provided her with a faithful customer base.

She is seeking a loan to buy more products to offer her customers.
