A loan of $625 helped to buy make-up, silver jewellery, perfumes, skin creams and more.


Lauren Teresa's story

Laura is 21 years old, single and has no children. She is originally from the city of Managua and is now a businesswoman, with a grocery store and also selling make-up. Laura started her business four years with her parents' support. With just a few cosmetic products, she opened her business and, little by little, started buying items for her grocery store. Laura now has two popular and prosperous businesses. Her next goal is to expand her business. She is applying for this loan in order to buy make-up, silver jewellery, perfumes, skin creams and more. With these items she can offer variety of products to her customers. Laura thinks that this loan will be of great help as she will be able to stock up with order for her customers and earn better profits. Laura's plan for the future is to keep her grocery store going and to have a bookshop.
