Karla Estebana's story

Ms. Karla is forty-six-years-old, married, and lives in the Villa Reconciliación neighborhood in the city of Managua. She has six children, five of whom are independent and one of whom is studying at the university. They are seventeen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one, twenty-four, and twenty-six-years-old. Her husband is a driver. Ms. Karla has a local store, which she started with her own funds. With the help of her husband and her children, she started selling a few products. Now, she has had the store for eight years, and the inventory of the store has increased. She is requesting a loan to invest in the store and to purchase products such as basic grains and cleaning products. This way, the supply for her clients will not decrease. Mrs. Karla’s goal is to be able to finish giving her youngest child an education to prepare him for a professional career.
