A loan of $850 helped to purchase televisions and sound equipment.


Esperanza Del Socorro's story

Esperanza is a merchant at one of the city markets in León. She opens her business at 6 a.m. to sell ice and plastic bags to the merchants who sell seafood, and later on she sells household appliances on credit before she finishes up at 4 p.m. She travels to the city of Managua once a week to purchase her merchandise. She is a mother of six children, all grown up and independent. She started her business selling clothes on the street. She is requesting the loan from Kiva partner Ceprodel to purchase new products such as televisions and sound equipment that can be used by the merchants. Her dream is to finish making improvements to her home.
