Yadira Del Carmen's story

Yadira del Carmen, 38, is single and has two children, ages 16 and 11. Six years ago she set up a small store in her home with a lot of effort so she could pay for her household expenses. She's requesting the loan to be able to stock her store by buying rice, sugar, beans, salt, soap, oil, coffee, detergent, and other things. This way she'll be able to keep her customers, who are loyal because of her good service. Her goals are to improve her business and the physical structure of her house, but mainly for her children to finish their studies without any problems. Yadira's grateful for the help that Kiva lenders offer to low-income people and poor countries such as Nicaragua.
