Yamileth De Los Angeles
Yamileth de los Ángeles, is married and has a one-year-old son. She is from Managua, a place located in the central area of the country. She is a very friendly, respectful, and hard-working woman, eager to improve herself. Unfortunately, because of a lack of financial resources, she wasn't able to complete a university degree, but would have very much liked to have become a nurse.

Thanks to her enterprising spirit, she has had a small general store business in her home for five years, a business that she is very happy to carry on, as it is how she supports her family.

Yamileth's routine is to work around 12 hours a day, offering her products to customers at her "pulpería". A "pulpería" is a small store where basic household necessities are sold, such as rice, beans, bread, milk, eggs, juice, salt, detergents, matches, as well as packets of shampoo and coffee.

Yamileth is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to the help they provide her, she will be able to undertake purchases and stock her general store. This way she can satisfy her clientele, and in the not-too-distant future, generate better income.
