A loan of $1,000 helps to buy backpacks, notebooks, school shoes, sandals, and flip-flops.


Santos Bricelda's story

Briselda, 58, is a single woman, the mother of three children, which inspired her to start her own business 25 years ago, with which she got her children ahead. Today they're professionals thanks to the results of her work selling shoes made in Nicaragua, offering backpacks, sandals, shoes, flip-flops, and children's clothing. She's the pillar of her family.

She went to request another Kiva loan from MiCrédito to buy backpacks, notebooks, school shoes, sandals, and flip-flops. Her son is the one who helps her with every investment in her business.

In the near future she wants to continue investing, to have her own store.
