A loan of $425 helped invest in business capital and stock her business with flip-flops for men, children and women, and shoes made of fabric.


Rosalina Alejandra's story

Rosalina, 55, is a single mother of five children, who are independent, in the city of León. León is in the west of the country. Rosalind sells flip-flops for women, children and men, and shoes made of fabric. She’s been running this business for 19 years. The idea for this business came about as a result of needing a source of income to help out with expenses at home. Rosalind has shown herself to be responsible in repaying previous loans. The objective of this loan is to invest in business capital and stock her business with flip-flops for women, children and men, and shoes made of fabric. Rosalind is grateful for the help Kiva investors offer those of few resources -- and poor countries like Nicaragua -- so that they can have a dignified work environment.
