A loan of $1,000 helped to buy rice, sugar, oil, soft-drinks and cosmetics.


Sonia Maria's story

Sonia’s a lady living in the city of Estelí for a long time; she works as a grocer and selling cosmetics. Since she got her first loan her life improved quite a bit; she was able to invest in her grocery store and in selling cosmetics. She’s asking for this new loan to buy rice, sugar, oil, soft-drinks and cosmetics. Now that her daughters are older they help her distribute her goods and she has good regular customers. She says that her customers don’t change because her prices are good and she sells the best. Her future plan is to have a bigger business that impacts her sector and her near-term goals are to increase inventory and to have the products her customers are asking for.
