A loan of $950 helped to buy fruit and vegetables.

Rosalia Ramona's story

Rosalía, 37, is married and has no children. She’s from León Department, a place located in the western part of the country. León is noted for being a place with welcoming, helpful, hardworking people. Rosalía’s economic activity is selling fruit and vegetables; she’s been in this business for 15 years. Her daily routine is to work 8 hours going from place to place with a basket on her head selling her fruit and vegetables.

She has worked with the Fundación previously and has been responsible and made her payments as required. The objective of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business with vegetables and fruit like oranges, tomatoes, peppers, papayas, pineapples, passion fruit, squash and chayote to be ready for the Christmas season this way. Rosalía is grateful for the help Kiva lenders provide people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so that ways of earning a living with dignity are possible.
