Bertilda Rosa's story

Bertilda is 50 years old, married and the mother of 6 children. She is from Tipitapa, Managua.

Bertilda is a saleswoman who sells cosmetics and clothing. She has been in this business for three years. She started out selling underwear as an itinerant street vendor in the markets and gradually built up her current customer portfolio. She sells to her customers for cash and on credit. Bertilda currently has a mini store in her home where she sells cosmetics as well as clothing. She is requesting this loan to buy underwear, cosmetics, trousers, shirts, bras, underpants, t-shirts, etc. This will give her more merchandise to sell and she will be able to fill the orders that she has. She is currently looking to find more central business premises where she can set up a store selling a variety of merchandise.
