A loan of $625 helped to buy inventory.


Yaoska's story

This is a happy lady from Puerto Cabezas. She is 29 years old, married, and has three school-aged children. Ten years ago she started a costume jewelry and ladies’ accessory business from a rented stall in the local market, so she could have an income of her own. With her income and thanks to her two previous loans though Pana Pana, she has been able to maintain her business and buy the stall.

Three years ago her husband became unemployed and they started a cell phone repair and accessories business, which Yaoska manages. She is asking for this third loan to buy merchandise for both businesses, such as perfumes, ladies’ and men’s creams, hair irons, undergarments, bracelets, chains, steel rings, snacks, cell phone protectors headsets, and TV remote in Managua. Her dream is for her businesses to grow and to build a concrete wall around her house.
