Introducing to you, Vida, who sells clothing, and who started her business eight years ago. She was motivated by her sister to begin this business, with about 1,000 córdobas that her husband gave her, and through the sales she was motivated to develop little by little until today she has a store that offers a variety of clothing.
However, in order to continue expanding her business for this holiday season, she needs this loan in order to buy merchandise most in demand at the point of sale.
She used to work selling fruit and tamales. She is married and has two school-aged children.

This loan is administered by Centro de Promocion del Desarrollo Local (CEPRODEL), one of Kiva’s larger partners in Central America. Founded in 1991 and based in Managua, Nicaragua, CEPRODEL specializes in the development and funding of housing cooperatives for traditionally marginalized communities, the provision of microfinance services to small businesses, and the promotion of innovative renewable energy projects. In addition, unlike many microfinance institutions in the area that have chosen to avoid the rural areas of the country due to the increased financial risk, CEPRODEL provides financial services to numerous clients in the agriculture and livestock industry. Supporting a borrower through CEPRODEL means contributing to the promotion and sustainability of this important work in Nicaragua.
