Teodora's story

Videa is 56 years old and married. Her ten children are 16, 18, 20, 22, 23, 27, 30, 37, 40 and 42 years old. Only the youngest still attends secondary school.

For the past fifteen years Videa has earned her living selling shellfish on the streets of León. She decided to start the business to help her husband support the family. He is a watchman and gave her his full support. In this way Videa was able to start her shellfish business.

With the loan she plans to buy more products such as fish, shrimp, crab etc. which will give her the opportunity to earn more money. Videa is grateful for the help that Kiva donors bring a poor person like her in a poor country like Nicaragua.
