Elba Del Carmen
Elba, 54, lives in the city of Managua. She’s the mother of three adult children. She has a pharmacy and also offers nursing services since she used to work at a health center but at the age of 39 started her pharmacy business with one of her children. In addition, a female doctor comes by twice a week to do routine check-ups. She wants to stock her pharmacy with a variety of medicines her customers request and equip the lab with all instruments.

She’s asking for a loan to buy an ultrasound machine and medicines for the pharmacy. This will make it possible for her to have medicine in stock and to do prenatal exams that she’s been unable to do up to now; with this investment she will be able to do them.
