Ana Maria's story

Ana lives in a neighbourhood of the capital Managua called Leonel Rugama. She is 66 years old and has two children: one graduated in chemical engineering and the other drives a taxi. Both her children help her with her expenses; her husband has passed away. She has a stall selling clothes in the Roberto Huembes market. She started her business with money her elder child gave her. Sales have dropped with the rising cost of basic foods. However, she continues to sell and plans to invest this loan in a variety of clothes for the holiday season as seasonal sales are good. In the future, she wants to further establish her business and increase her line of credit.
