Mireya Del Socorro's story

Mireya, 37 years old, is a single mother of three children, 18, 7, and 18 years of age. She is originally from León, a place that is located in the western part of the country. Unfortunately, because of the lack of economic resources, she could not study at a university. She is characterized as a hard-working, responsible person with good habits and a desire for personal self-improvement, which she has demonstrated in her previous loans in her on-time and complete payments.

Thanks to her effort, she sells general merchandise. This consists of selling pants, shirts, dresses, shorts, t-shirts, underwear, cosmetics, perfumes, and school items. She works about 10 hours a day on foot and through orders. She carries a load of about 20 kilograms when offering her products. She performs this activity with pleasure because it is her and her children’s way of life.

The objective of the loan is to invest it in the capital of her work and supply her business with merchandise, from which in the near future she will be able to obtain a better income. Mireya del Socorro gives thanks for the help that the Kiva lenders provide to people of limited resources and from poor countries like Nicaragua to have a dignified means of working.
