Cintya Carolina
Cinthia Carolina is 27 years old and single. She is from Managua, located in the centre of the country. Cinthia can be described as a hard-working responsible person with good habits and a desire to better herself. In her free time, she enjoys having fun with her family doing activities such as cooking a regional dish of the region such as “Indio Viejo”, a soup with vegetables and corn. Unfortunately, because of a lack of money she could not go to university, but she would have liked to study social work.
Thanks to her spirit and desire to succeed she has a grocery store located in her home. It is a small store selling items in small quantities such as shampoo, coffee, tomato sauces, rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, washing up liquid, soap, juices, biscuits, tiste (a traditional chocolate and corn drink), and fruit drinks. She serves at her store for around 10 hours every day offering her products.
The aim of her loan is to invest in working capital and stock her store so that in the not too distant future she can boost her profits. Cinthia Carolina is grateful for the help provided by Kiva lenders to people of limited means and poor countries such as Nicaragua.
