Violeta De Fatima's story

Violetta, 47 years old, is a native of Managua. She has five children, however only the youngest is still dependent on her. He is 16 years old and attends high school. Formerly she sold cooked food, however the smoke from the firewood affected her health and she had to stop selling food. For the past eight years she has been selling clothing. Her husband makes a living by giving classes and she helps him with household expenses from her earnings.

Violetta needs funding to purchase shoes, brassieres, blouses, perfume, etc. This is the best selling merchandise and these are the items most requested by her customers. She wants to establish a mini store in her home offering a variety of merchandise. In addition, she would also like to sell handicrafts.
