Veronica De La Concepcion's story

Verónica de la Concepción, 25, is a single mother of three minor children. She’s from León, a place located in the western part of the country. She likes cooking traditional dishes like ‘gallopinto’ in her free time. Unfortunately, Verónica was unable to study a university career due to lack of economic resources but she would have liked to study international business.

Thanks to her spirit of self-improvement and her drive to get ahead, her economic activity is selling crafts such as jars, vases, and cosmetics. She’s been in this activity for 7 years. She sells products like lipstick, blush, eye shadow, eye liner, wrinkle creams, foundation, powder, body talc and perfume. The object of the loan is to invest in working capital to stock her business to increase profits in the not too distant future. Verónica thanks Kiva lenders who provide for people of scarce resources and poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have a way to earn a living with dignity.
