Karla Jasmina's story

Karla Jasmina, 37, is from the town of Jalapa. She currently lives in the city of Condega, Estelí, where she married and had a son who is now 8 years old. She has a furniture making business that she inherited from her family in 1993. Because of this she was unable to start her university studies having only completed 11th grade because she had to see to her family’s interests.

She requested a Kiva loan to further her sales a bit more, which take place only in the town of Condega, and to buy more dry lumber and machinery since what she has is a bit worn out.

She currently runs the business together with her husband but she also contributes to household expenses with a small beauty salon. Her goal is to have her products be known in other towns to improve her quality of life and provide a better future for her young son.
