Yadira Del Carmen's story

Yadira is originally from the town in Nandasmo, in the Masaya deparment. She is 50 years old and married. She has a family: a husband and three children. She has had her own business for seven years.

Yadira has a grocery store where she sells products such as sweets, fizzy drinks, juices, basic grains and personal items. She runs the business out of her home and tends to her customers every day. Her customers are her neighbours from the barrio.

In order to stock-up her business, Yadira travels to the market in Masaya. Everything else that she needs, she buys from businesses that come to her town. Yadira also tells us that she also owns two mototaxis and, as a woman and a mother, she is satisfied with her work because she feels she has prospered with God's help.

Yadira is now applying for a loan to invest in her business, so as to improve her sales and tend to her customers' needs. Yadira needs a variety of products and then she will be able to satisfy demand.

Yadira will use this loan to stock-up her business with Faisán rice, 80/20 rice, beans, oil, cheese, chicken, fizzy drinks and juices, soaps, sauces, flour, toilet paper, cups, spoons, chewing-gum, Colgate toothpaste, Toto coffee, Ritz cheese, milk, sanitary towels and Presto coffee.

Yadira believes that his loan will help increase her sales and improve her quality of life.
