Gloria Del Carmen's story

56-year old Gloria del Carme is married and has a son. She lives in Chinandega which is located in the western part of the country. It's known as a productive business area. Gloria earns her living selling soft drinks, popsicles, chocolate-covered bananas etc. She also sells pigs, pork, and fried snacks. Known as a hardworking woman with a desire to get ahead, Gloria has run her business from her home for ten years.

She has worked with the Foundation in the past and demonstrated responsibility with the loan repayments. The money she needs now is for working capital to buy stock for her store: sugar, fruit, pickling spices, pigs to butcher, meat pasties, fried snacks, lard etc. Gloria is grateful for the help Kiva donors provide to poor people and poor countries like Nicaragua so that people can have work.
