Rafaela Emilia's story

Rafaela Emilia is 28 years old. She is a single mother to a 10-year-old son. She is from the municipality of Malpaisillo, located in the northern part of the country.
Rafaela's business is the selling of merchandise such as men's and children's clothing, trousers, skirts, dresses, blouses, underwear and shoes.
The business is a street trade that originated with the goal of having an income source to help with the household expenses.
The aim of this loan is to invest in working capital and supply her business with shirts, skirts, dresses, underwear and trousers. Rafaela Emilia is grateful for the help Kiva lenders provide to low income people from poor countries such as Nicaragua that allows them to get a decent work.
