Lucia Erlinda's story

57-year-old Lucia Erlinda, a single woman with four children, is economically active in general merchandise sales with more than thirty years of managing this business, in which time she has managed to further expand the variety of merchandise. Her purchases are made in the eastern market of Managua, her sales are credit and cash as a street vendor and at home with permanent and temporary customers. Lucia is very grateful to the investors for the opportunity that they have given her to acquire this funding, as she has achieved a better standard of living and can go on with her family.
