Daysi Milagros's story

28-year-old Daysi Milagros is married and has a two-year-old son. She comes from Managua, a town which is located in the central area of the region. In her free time she greatly enjoys playing with her little boy. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources she wasn't able to attend college, but she would have very much liked to have studied for a career in civil engineering.
Thanks to her enterprising spirit and her drive to get ahead, Daysi runs a business. She has owned a hardware store for a year and it's located in a specific spot of her town. Daysi's daily routine is working about 10 hours a day offering her services. She runs this business with great pleasure, so that in a not-so-distant future she'll be able to improve her profits. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and to stock up her business with hardware such as zinc, cement, beams, nails, iron, wire, paint, screws, brushes and PVC pipes. Daysi thanks Kiva lenders for the help they provide for people of scarce financial resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a decent means of livelihood.
