Blanca Yadira's story

Blanca Yadira is married and has two children (minors). She is from a municipality in Chinandega, located in the western part of the country. She runs a general merchandise business, buying and selling adult and children's clothing, cosmetics, gold articles, footwear, and trinkets. She sells her products for cash or credit, to permanent and temporary clients, both at markets and at home. One of her dreams is for her children to become professionals, an opportunity she never had herself since she had to work from an early age in order to contribute to the income of the household. This is not the first time Blanca asks for a loan and thanks to previous support she has been able to increase her business, offer a wider range of products, and better serve the needs of her clients. The purpose of this loan is to increase her inventory, as she has several orders from her clients that she needs to deliver. Therefore she is again applying for a loan in order to buy more adult and children’s clothing, cosmetics, and other consumer goods. Blanca is very grateful to the Kiva lenders for offering their support to people with scarce economic resources.
