Osmara Carolina's story

Osmara is a friendly woman and originally from Puerto Cabezas. She is 28 years old and married. In order to have her own source of income, three years ago Osmara started her own little grocery store with her own capital. In the beginning, Osmara sold just basic grains and dairy products. Thanks to her income and her first loan from "Pana Pana" a year ago, however, her business has grown and Osmara has bought a fridge and built an extension on her house, thus expanding the grocery store.

Osmara is applying for her second loan in order to buy stock for her business and improve her income; Osmara will buy:twelve bags of dairy products, toilet rolls, sanitary towels, soap, basic grains, instant coffee, bath soaps and soaps for washing clothes, cold meats, chicken, ground meat, fizzy drinks and water.
