Manuela De Jesus's story

Manuela is 63 years old and she is a married woman. She works as a merchant with a desire to move forward and meet her goals. She is the mother of three children and owner of a small grocery store with 15 years of experience in that area. She has the support of her eldest daughter at the store, who from early in the morning gets up to look after her clients.

Manuela has knocked on the doors of Kiva and MiCredito to buy a fridge, personal hygiene products, rice and oil to increase her income and improve her living conditions.

In the short term Manuela thinks of setting up another shop in a more central area of the city, to be looked after by her son.
