A loan of $675 helped to purchase clothing and shoes.


Josefina's story

Josefina, who is originally from Pueblo Nuevo in the municipality of Estelí, works in retail. She shares with us the change that her first Kiva loan effected, for which she is very grateful. She used it to purchase new clothing and cosmetics to stock up her store, including being able to purchase shoes to sell and provide variety. This has allowed her to expand her business and bit by bit improve her income. She is always continuing with her goal of growing her business further, and it is for this reason that she is requesting this loan to purchase clothing and shoes, especially as it is the school season when school shoes and uniforms are much in demand by her customers. She is a woman who wants to move ahead in life with her business; above all she wants to give her children a good university education so that they can get ahead in life.
