Omara Del Socorro's story

Omara del Socorro, 27, is married with one son. She is from Managua, which is located in the central part of the country. In her free time, she likes to enjoy quality time with her family, preparing a typical meal such as "indio viejo" (a corn-based stew). Unfortunately, she was not able to go to college, but she would have liked to study business administration.

Thanks to her effort and her desire to succeed, she has a business selling piñatas and children's party supplies such as plates, glasses, disposable silverware, candles, confetti, balloons, thermoses with straws, plastic chairs and tables. She dedicates about 10 hours per day to her business, which is located in a market in her town.

She will use this loan to invest in working capital and stock her business by buying children's party supplies, so that in the not-so-distant future she can obtain a better income. Omara del Socorro is grateful for the help which Kiva lenders offer to people with limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they can have a decent livelihood.
