Vilma Cordelia's story

Vilma is 41 years old, married, and has four children of the ages 15, 17, 19, and 20. Three of her children attend school and the other works. Vilma is a woman who has worked her life in order to get ahead. This is not the first time that she has worked with Fundación; in her previous loans, she has demonstrated herself to be a responsible person who complied with her payments.

She owns a small grocery store which is located in her home where she sells basic grains, cosmetics, clothing, frozen foods, sweets, and other products. Vilma is very grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders provide to people of limited resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua in order to have a means of dignified work.
