Santos Gabriela's story

Santos Gabriela, of legal age, has five adult children. She is from the municipality of Chinandega, located in the West of the country. Santos is a hardworking, responsible woman, and with a lot of effort managed to help her children to get ahead. She now works in the business of selling glass bottles, which she buys in bars and restaurants. She then washes them and sells them to a business in León. She also makes some handicrafts, which she sells to businesses in markets.

One of her dreams is to continue making improvements to her home, which she has been repairing bit by bit. This loan will be used to buy primary materials - glass bottles - and to continue her business in order to earn more income. Santos is very grateful for the support that Kiva lenders offer to people with few economic resources.
