A loan of $1,250 helped to buy curds to sell.


Miriam's story

Miriam, age 50, is married and has three grown children. She lives in the city of Managua south of the León area. She is known for being a hard-working and responsible woman. She has had to work hard in her life in order to get ahead.

It is thanks to her spirit and her great desire to get ahead that she has a business selling curds at her house and in an itinerant manner. Miriam’s daily routine is working ten hours a day under the hot sun with a basket of about 20 kilograms, and she travels the streets of her community. However, she does this business activity with a lot of desire because it has been the way to support her children.

The loan is to invest working capital and stock her business of buying and selling curds. She will do this in order to be able to increase her income in the near future.

Miriam is grateful to the Kiva lenders for the help they give to people with scarce resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a decent way of earning a living.
