Arabella's story

Arabella is a young woman who lives in the municipality of Condega, some 35 km north of the the departmental seat of Estelí, Nicaragua, where she has lived her whole life.

Currently she is a single and independent young woman who teaches primary school classes in this municipality. In her free time, she also sells personal hygiene cosmetics through the catalog of a well-known brand in order to defray her monthly costs.

She presented herself at the Condega Ceprodel offices with the goal of requesting a new loan, her fifth, in order to buy cosmetic products and always have them in stock and in this way have better sales and consequently a better income.

She appears positive and hopes that she will be approved for this loan, since through her own efforts she has succeeded in being totally independent, and with her income she has succeeded in continuing to improve her house, which she has built through her own efforts.
