Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Nubia Constantina's story

Nubia Constantina is from the department of León. She is a single mother. She starts showing her merchandise at 7:00 a.m. and finishes her work at 12:00 p.m.

She began her business selling animal feed with working capital of 3,000 córdobas (NIO), product of savings. Nubia buys wholesale products such as rice, sugar, corn, etc.

It is worth mentioning that demand has increased and this is why she is requesting a loan to buy the grains to sell both retail and wholesale, and so get greater income to improve her quality of life.
