Ramona Antonia's story

Ramona, 40, is married and has two children who are in her care and study at the univesity. She is from the town of León which is in the western part of country. Ramona is known for being a very hard-working, responsible person who is determined to improve her situation. She earns a living selling different brands of cosmetics by catalogue.

She sells products such as lipstick, foundation, blush-on, eyeliner, creams, perfumes, eye corrector, make-up remover and eye shadow. She works on a door-to-door basis and receives orders from fixed and eventual customers. She has been in business for ten years and started it to have an income to support her family.

Ramona has worked with the León 2000 Foundation before and has proven herself to be responsible in paying back the loan on time. The loan she needs now is to stock her business and take advantage of the seasonal discounts. She hopes to receive support through the Kiva Program and the León 2000 Foundation. Ramona is grateful for the help Kiva lenders give to people with scarce resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua, so they can earn a decent living.
