Jeannette Del Carmen's story

Jeannette del Carmen is a married adult with three minor children. She’s from Chinandega and is a micro businesswoman who owns a home-based grocery store where she sells basic grains like rice, sugar, oil, frozen goods, detergent, children’s clothes, low-cost novelty items and others. She also has a home-based ice-cream shop where demand is high especially during these festive times.

The objective of this loan is for working capital to buy products for the grocery store and even more so for the ice-cream shop like cones in all sizes, cups, spoons and napkins, among others to fill customer needs in this type of product. Jeannette is very grateful to Kiva lenders for the support they provide people of low economic resources.
