Carolina's story

Carolina is 51 years old and is married with a grown son, who is independent. She is originally from Managua, which is located in the central part of the country. Carolina is a hard-working and responsible person with a desire for self-improvement, so she works day after day to support her family. Goals and dreams that she has achieved: she has now raised her son to be a professional and a decent person for society.

Thanks to her spirit and her desire to move ahead, she works selling secondhand clothing in her home. She has been doing this for 8 years. She sells a variety of clothing for adults and children such as shirts, skirts, shorts, and pants. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and supply her business, so that in the not-so-distant future she can obtain better earnings. Carolina is thankful for the help that the Kiva lenders provide to people with few resources in poor countries like Nicaragua to have a path to dignified work.
