Carmen's story

Carmen, who is 73 years old, is single and has no children. She comes from the town of Chinandega. This entrepreneur is a capable, hard-working person, who still, at her age, works day after day to have better living conditions. Carmen's business is the sale of a variety of products. She has had this business for 41 years. Now, in spite of her difficulties, such as the weather, economic problems, and her age, she has overcome these trials, thanks to the support that Leon 2000 together with the Kiva program have offered her so that she can advance her business by investing in the products that she offers her customers. The products that she offers are popsicles, candies, cookies, jellies, and Maruchan soups.
