A loan of $425 helped to purchase high-quality used clothing.

Patricia Angelica's story

Patricia Angélica is a 33-year-old single mother of three young children, ages 9, 8 and 4. She is originally from the department of Chinandega, which is located in the western zone. She makes a living selling cosmetics and second-hand clothing. For the past six years her business has consisted of selling children's clothing, shirts, pants, shorts and skirts, all used. She runs the business out of her home and started it as a means to make headway for her children. As a single mother, her financial responsibility is great. Patricia Angélica has already worked with the foundation and has demonstrated the responsibility of making her payments on time. She is requesting this loan to have working capital to purchase high-quality used clothing in order to provide a better service to her customers and have better revenue. Patricia Angélica is grateful for the help provided by Kiva lenders to people of scant resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so they have access to dignified work.
