Edda Ramona's story

Edda, 48, is a mother of three children, all of whom are adults. The entire family lives together in Managua.

She has a small grocery store and she also sells tortillas. Her first business was selling tortillas, which she started with a handmade oven. With her profits from the tortilla sales, she bought a refrigerator to sell ice, milk, and soft drinks. Little by little, she continued to add more products until she opened her grocery store. Her husband supports her with his salary to contribute to the home expenses, and he also takes care of the grocery store when she goes out to sell tortillas.

She has applied for a loan to buy firewood, corn, soft drinks, basic grains, cheese, cream, eggs, bread, milk, cleaning products, etc. In the future, she hopes to buy shelves to exhibit her products and to improve the infrastructure of her home in order to have a decent place to live.
