Candida Francisca's story

Cándida is married and her husband works as a truck driver at the San Antonio plant. She has 10 children who are all married. She only has one dependent, a granddaughter who lives with her in a community near Chichigalpa called Guanacastal. The majority of people living in this area are farmers and pork merchants. She sells staple grains, chicken, meat, soap, axe, oil, and vegetables. She has been counting on this business for 20 years.

She is a simple, hardworking, enterprising woman who dreams of having a bigger business and selling a large assortment of home products.
