A loan of $650 helped to purchase clothing, shoes and cosmetics.


Indira Gissell's story

Gissel is a 23 year old young woman who lives in the Reparto España of Managua. She is married and has a 4 year old son who is her highest priority: she wants to see to it that he never lacks for anything. Consequently she has begun selling cosmetics, clothing and shoes. Her husband works on his own as a lawyer, however it is often difficult for him to find cases that go into litigation and they have to rely solely on Gissel’s earnings.

The loan Gissel is requesting will be invested in her small business. She hopes to expand and to maintain a more sustainable means of income for her home in order to insure the proper growth of her son.
