Jeny Zorayda's story

Jeny Zorayda is 48 years old, married, and has two children, 15 and 21 years old, who study at school. She is originally from Managua, located in the central part of the region. She is known to be a hardworking and responsible woman who wants to succeed. In her free time, she likes to spend quality time with her family. She prepares traditional local dishes such as gallo pinto (rice and beans). Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, she was not able to attend university, but she would have liked to study for a professional degree in nursing.

Thanks to her spirit and desire to succeed, she works selling generic prescription medicines from different commercial brands such as alka D, panadol, losartan, gavapentina, tramadol, gavileb, tenolol, and diasepan. She works about 10 hours every day and she enjoys her work a lot. Her business is located in one of the markets in her town. She is requesting this loan to invest in working capital and stock her store with prescription and generic medicines to sell so that in the near future, she can earn more income.

Jeny Zorayda is grateful to the help Kiva lenders provide to people with limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can have a decent working environment.
