Ivania Del Socorro's story

Ivania is 33 years old. She is originally from Estelí, is married, and is a mother of three children. She works selling fried food and soft drinks. Her start was very difficult because she began by selling her products under a small umbrella in the street, since she needed a way to sustain herself and generate an income. Later, she saw that her business needed more capital, and it was then that she decided to look for financing to purchase chairs and tables with the objective of offering a comfortable and familiar environment to her clients.
She is asking for a loan to purchase soft drinks, corn, oil, wholesale chicken, cheese, etc, with the goal of offering food to her customers, since in this way she will be able to obtain a better income. One of her immediate goals is to purchase all of the materials she needs for a wider variety of foods, and one of her future plans is to employ other people.
