Nora Del Carmen's story

Nora del Carmen is 59 years old and is a single mother with two children who are 31 and 29 years old. She is from the department of León, located in the west of the country. León is known for being a tourist area and it proudly has the Cathedral of León, which is World Heritage.

Nora del Carmen's economic activity is a store she has had for five years, located in her home. Nora's routine is to open doors to the public every day from 6am to 9pm to offer products to her clientele.

She needs the financing to stock her store with products of daily consumption such as rice, beans, sugar, candy, milk, bread, eggs, and vegetables, among others. Nora del Carmen is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders provide to business people with limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua.
