Carlos Misael's story

Carlos Misael, 32, is married and has two minor children who are 14 and 4 years of age and who attend elementary school. His business consists in selling general merchandise. He sells assorted new clothes, plastic items and belts, among other accessories. He’s been in business three years. He does not have a fixed locale; he sells from place to place. He’s from Chichigalpa where rum, sugarcane and sugar predominate. His clientele has increases because he’s gone everywhere. One of Carlos’ desires is to improve the house he lives in as well as to expand the business more. This loan’s objective is to invest in working capital and stock the business buying merchandise like children’s clothes, adult clothes, pants, shirts, dresses, shorts, skirts, bed linens, towel sets, underwear, varied plastic items to meet customer demand and in a not too distant future increase his income. Carlos Misael is thankful for the support Kiva lenders provide people of scarce resources and poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have a way to earn their livelihood with dignity.
