Banco Mujer La Confianza Group's story

Violeta, 58 years old, is a notably hardworking Nicaraguan woman.

Over 20 years ago, her only option in life was to live in a different country to generate household income and raise her family. She tells us that as a child she watched her father make shoes, so she decided to learn the craft and start her own shoe store with the help of her children and her husband.

She already counts with the shoe store: one of the few within the area where she lives that is well stocked with all types of shoes that her clients may request.

For the last two years, she has been supplying shoes to different stores in the larger metropolitan area. As such, she is requesting a loan to invest in purchasing the raw materials needed to continue crafting together different shoes.

This helps her generate revenue for the home so she can provide for the welfare of her children and grandchildren.

Violeta is a woman of great entrepreneurial nature and is very grateful for the assistance provided by Fundación Mujer, since the area where she lives is considered marginalized and is not frequently visited.

She appreciates the loans offered at low interest rates.
