Victoriana Del Carmen's story

Victoriana, one of Kiva's clients, is 55 and comes from San Juan de Limay in the municipality of Estelí. She is very grateful for her first loan which helped her to increase her grocery shop's stock by buying products such as basic grains, oil, cleaning products, fruit juice and soft drinks which she did not previously have in stock . She feels great because she has been able to increase her income. She is applying for this second loan to buy school equipment, exercise books, pencils, make-up, basic grains, rice and sugar as her ambition is to further increase her sales and boost her income.
