Isolina Del Carmen's story

Isolina del Carmen, 21, is an enterprising young woman. She's single and has no children. She lives in her parents's house in a region of Chinandega. She studies accounting in the university and is about to finish her program.

She wants to have her own business, a stocked store. With youthful initiative for young entrepreneurs, it's her opportunity to be able to achieve her dreams, such as having a store.

She started selling on foot with her mother when she was 15. She acquired experience and went out on her own when she was 17. Today she has a lot of customers. To satisfy the demand she needs a loan, which will help her have her own business and not sell on foot, because this is how she supports her studies.

She's a young woman with a broad vision, sure of what she wants and with a great desire to grow. She's responsible, honest, and very hardworking. She needs a loan to invest and stock her business to earn her own income.
