A loan of $925 helped to buy plastic chairs to lease for events.

Bibiana Frank's story

Bibiana, 56, is married with five adult children; she’s from Chinandega, a place located in the west of the country. Her economic activity is leasing plastic chairs; she leases them out for all types of social events. She’s been in business for 15 years and it’s located at home. Bibiana’s daily routine is to work about 10 hours. The objective of the loan is to invest in working capital and to buy more chairs that are being sold to her at a good price to meet customer demand. The business arose because she needed to have a way to earn household income in a dignified way. Currently, it’s become her and her children’s means of support. Bibiana is grateful for the help Kiva lenders provide people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua to have dignifies sources of employment.
