Sobeida Auxiliadora's story

Sobeida Auxiliadora is 52 years old, married and has three adult children who are all independent. Sobeida is known for being hardworking and responsible in making her payments in a timely manner. She is a native of León, which is located in the western part of the country.

Thanks to her spirit and personal desire to succeed, she runs a small grocery store in which she sells products in small quantities such as shampoo packets, coffee packets, rice, cooked beans, oil, eggs, bread, milk, juices and carbonated soft drinks. Her store is located in her house and she has been running it now for eight years.

She is requesting this loan to invest in working capital and to stock her store so that she can offer better service to her clients and in the near future generate more income. Sobeida’s work routine is to work around 14 hours per day offering her products to the members of her community.

Sobeida Auxiliadora is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders provide for people with limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they can have a decent livelihood.
