Irene Cristina's story

Irene is a reliable, modest, friendly, responsible, spontaneous, and hardworking 44-year-old woman. She has had a convenience store for five years.

There she offers soap, detergent, sardines, tuna, eggs, Maruchan soup, cornstarch, bread, pinolillo [a traditional cornmeal and cacao-based drink from Nicaragua], oats, coffee, Maggi soup, sugar, soft drinks, juices, tomato sauce, bread, and noodles. Her main supporter is her family.

She has turned to a loan from MiCrédito with Kiva to benefit from a loan that she wishes to use to purchase oil, rice, sugar, bread, picos [a sugar and cheese-filled pastry from Nicaragua], salt, tomato sauce, toilet paper, oats, pinolillo, barley, noodles, and soft drinks. In the future she wants to have a variety store.
