Miguel Geronimo's story

45 year old Miguel Geronimo is single and has 2 children in his care. He is originally from León, a place in the west of the country. He can be characterized as responsible, hardworking, and wanting to overcome problems. In his spare time, he enjoys himself playing games like baseball with his kids. Unfortunately, because he didn't have the economic resources, he was not able to study for a degree and he had to work from a very early age. Thanks to his spirit of excellence and his desire to succeed, he has a business selling merchandise such as men's and women's clothes: trousers, blouses, t-shirts, skirts, shorts, dresses, underwear, towels, nightwear. He works about 9 hours a day and he sells door to door, carrying a 30kg package of clothes. The goal of this loan is to supply his business by buying merchandise so that, in the not too distant future, he can get a better income. Miguel Gerónimo is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders offer to people who have scare resources and to poor countries such as Nicaragua so they can have dignified work.
