Gloria Isabel's story

Gloria Isabel is 43 years old. She is married and has two children, ages 15 and 10, who are in school. She is originally from the department of León, a place that is located in the western zone of the country. Gloria has 16 years of experience in her business, which is at a fixed location in the district. Gloria is a very responsible and hard-working woman. With a good payment history for her previous loans, she has shown responsibility in making her payments in full and on time. She needs financing to invest in working capital and stock her business of buying and selling clothing with items such as pants, blouses, dresses, shorts, underwear, sandals, sport shoes, tennis shoes, and flip-flops. Gloria's daily routine is to work some 10 hours a day to be able to obtain and increase her clientele and her income, because it is the way she is able to maintain her family. Gloria Isabel is grateful for the help that the Kiva investors offer to her and to people of scarce resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can have a means of dignified work.
