Lydia Junieth's story

Lydia Yunieth, 32, is a young, single woman mother of three children who are 5, 9 and 12 years of age. The two oldest attend primary school. She’s sold merchandise for six years especially new clothes from place to place in markets and streets where she lives. She learned the occupation from her mother and started the business with her own funds. One of her goals is to stay in business and increase her inventory more since she sells on both credit and for cash and collects on her investment weekly or biweekly. She’s been improving it by means of loans she’s gotten and is thus able to provide a better future for her children. Lydia is very grateful for the help Kiva lenders have given people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua.
