Victorino Asuncion's story

Victorino Asunción, 61, is married and has 3 children aged 13, 10 and 12 who are in school. They are natives of the municipality of Chinandega, which is located in the western part of the country and is known for being a very productive commercial area.

For more than 14 years, Victorino has been selling general merchandise such as sandals, adult clothing, cosmetics, trinkets, decorative items, plastic products, picture frames, big watches, small mirrors, and other items. He will use this loan to invest in working capital and to stock up his general merchandise business by purchasing pants, shoes, cosmetics, bed sheets, towels, and other items. This way, he can improve the quality of the products that he offers his customers and thereby obtain more income when he sells the products.

Victorino is a tenacious person who, in spite of his age, gives his utmost for his family. He is very grateful to the Kiva lenders for the support that they are providing to low-income people.
