Gioconda De Los Angeles's story

Gioconda is 49 years old. She is originally from Granada but she now lives in Managua. She is in a relationship. She is mother of three children who are currently studying. She is a merchant and she sells jewelry and cosmetics. She has been in business for more than 20 years. She started her business 29 years ago with her own capital with money from her companion. She started selling Avon perfumes. With the earnings generated from this business, she decided to start another business selling jewelry in the market. She feels very proud because with a lot of effort and hard work, she has been able to succeed with her business. She receives support from her partner. She sells products in the same area where she lives. One of the expectations is to increase her sales in order to earn better profits. Gioconda is requesting a loan to purchase jewelry like chains, bracelets, rings, display cases and cosmetics. She thinks this loan will her help her to purchase more merchandise that she does not have in inventory and at the same time, she can fill orders from her customers.
