Marina's story

Mrs. Marina, 52 years old, citizen of the city of Esteli and a merchant by trade, has worked selling clothing for 30 years. She is a mother of 3 children. She has her own store which she owns herself and has no support from anyone today. Marina wishes to see her store stocked better with products that are in-style right now. It's for this reason that she requires a loan from Kiva to invest in her business, which is the sale of shoes, quilts, shirts, and general merchandise. She estimates that the investment will be of help because she she will be able to stock more in her store in order to attract more customers, at the same time generating more sales. She hopes count on Kiva to keep her business running, increasing her store's diverse products in order to obtain better sales and offer a better education to her children.
