A loan of $400 helped to buy general merchandise.

Geoconda Benita's story

Geoconda Benita lives in the Chinandega department in the west of the country. She is 41 years old and makes her living selling general merchandise, such as children's clothing, cosmetics, clothing, used clothing and stuffed animals.

She also has a food stall at the bus terminal at her house, where she has permanent and temporary customers. She is a very hard-working person with many hopes of overcoming.

She is asking for the loan for working capital. One of her goals is to be able to improve her income to have economic stability in her household. She is grateful for the help of Kiva investors, who give her and other people with scarce resources and in poor countries like Nicaragua some dignity in work.
