A loan of $1,225 helped to buy stock for his bookstore.

Freddy's story

Freddy, age 47, has an adult son. He is from León, which is located in the western part of the country. Freddy is known for being hard-working and responsible with the desire for personal improvement. Starting at a very early age, he has had to work hard in order to help with the household expenses. He struggles day to day for a better future.

Thanks to his motivation and desire for personal improvement, he has a business activity, a bookstore. He sells products like books, notebooks, pencils, rulers, cardboard, bond paper, legal size paper, corrector products, and erasers. He spends ten hours a day on his business, which he does with great pleasure.

The objective of the loan is to invest in working capital and to stock his business. He will buy and sell school products so that, in the not so distant future, he will be able to have better income. Freddy is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders give to people with scarce resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a decent way of earning a living.
