Nora Yamilee's story

Nora Yamilee is 40 years old, married, and has a daughter aged 12, who is just beginning high school.

Nora owns a grocery store located in her home, where she sells basic cereals, frozen goods, popular medicine, sweets, soap, and washing up liquid amongst other basic household products. She also sells various clothing and cosmetics door-to-door to workplaces in her community.

She set up this business twelve years ago with her own funds. Since the beginning, her aim has been to expand it. She will invest the loan in different products to satisfy her customers and increase her earnings, so she can give her daughter a better future.

Nora is grateful for the support offered to her by Kiva lenders, helping her to improve her quality of life little by little.
