Darcia Maria's story

Darcia is a simple businesswoman who lives in Tapita in the municipality of Managua. She has two children aged 26 and 15. Darcia earns her living selling clothing. She used to be a maid cleaning people's houses and looking after children, but for ten years now she has been selling clothing and sandals in the neighborhoods and markets of the town where she lives.

Now she needs a loan to buy rubber flip flops, women's underwear, socks, sun tops, blouses, kitchen towels etc. She will then have more merchandise to sell and more working capital to buy new items like perfume and shampoo.

Darcia would like to have a permanent place in the market where she can keep her merchandise and sell it from there too.
