Magda Victoria
View original language description ↓
Magda Gonzáles dedicates herself arduously to her seamstress business in the Sandino City neighborhood of Managua, where she tends to clients out of her home. Magda is a single mother of two whom she cares for as a mother and father at the same time. Her main goal is to expand her business and thus improve the economic conditions of her humble household. Today she looks for financial support from Kiva partner Ceprodel with the hope of purchasing sewing supplies such as fabrics, thread, needles, etc. The loan will benefit her children as much as her.
