Perfecta's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase food supplies.
Perfecta has been a saleswoman for the past seven years. She makes a living selling traditional Nicaraguan foods such as chicken and fried meat. Her beginning years were difficult but this didn't stop her from achieving her goal of having a local food stand. Over time, her sales have increased and this brought her to apply for a loan from MiCrédito and Kiva to purchase vegetables and basic grains. She has now returned to Kiva and MiCrédito to purchase ingredients for her dishes and other products such as sodas or juices from different brands so she can satisfy her clients' needs. Her goal in the future is to be able to expand her stand with more tables and chairs so she can offer her clients more space to enjoy her food.
