Nicaragua

Alba Marina's story

Alba Marina is 57 years old and married with two adult children who are 32 and 29 years old and live independently. She is from the department of León, which is located in the western part of the country. Alba has been earning her living running a stationery store in her home for 33 years. Alba Marina has already worked with Fundación León 2000 and has shown her responsibility and desire to get ahead; her business has shown growth and she has an excellent loan payment history.

She needs this loan to invest in working capital and to buy stationery products like notebooks, pencils, markers, crayons, composition books, folders, reams of letter- and legal-size paper, erasers, rulers, and pencil cases, among others. Because of the lack of work in her country, Alba Marina is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders offer to people with limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua, so that they can have a decent livelihood.
