A loan of $500 helped to purchase hammocks, vases, fabric and flowers.

Petronila Auxiliadora's story

Petronila lives in the department of Masaya, Nicaragua. She has had her own business for 13 years selling flowers for every occasion, and she also sells products such as hammocks, artisan vases, and other items. She is experiencing high demand because of the Christmas season, so she is turning to Kiva partner Ceprodel to request a new loan. Petronila wants to invest more in her business to meet demand and plans to use the loan to purchase hammocks, vases, fabrics and pretty flowers so she can continue offering the products. She says that thanks to the support from the loans she has been able to make headway with her business and has improved her family's quality of life, and she wants it to continue.
