Crecencia's story

Crecencia is a native of Puerto Cabezas. She is 49 years old and is a single mother of three children who are all working adults. With the goal of having a source of income to support her children, she opened a clothing store for adults and children, with the help of her brother. She remembers that she started by selling underwear, beauty accessories and cosmetics. With the earnings, she was able to continue expanding.

She is seeking a loan to purchase the following merchandise in Managua: half a dozen pairs of pants for men, women and children; half a dozen skirts, shorts and shirts for men, women and children; sheets; curtains; sandals from girls and women. Her dream is for her business to continue growing, to display the clothing on mannequins, and to continue supporting her children so they can have their own homes.
