Nilda's story

Nilda is a 37 year old woman who lives in the city of Camancá with her two little children who she loves and who are her principal reason for living. She is a very friendly, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who puts all her efforts into moving her family ahead as she is both father and mother to her children. Unfortunately, because of a lack of economic resources and because she had to work from a young age, Nilda was not able to study a professional degree. In her free time she likes to watch movies and sometimes to cook a delicious shrimp chowder called Chupe de Camarones to share with her family.
On her own initiative, and with much effort and dedication, Nilda runs a small clothes store selling underwear such as briefs, panties, stockings, and other things. Nilda works every day for about 10 hours and believes that she is doing well because of her good prices and for the friendly attention that she gives to others.
Nilda is very grateful to the Kiva lenders as, thanks to the help they have offered, she will be able to make improvements to her home as she needs to buy construction materials to repair the roof and to enclose the yard. In this way, she and her family will have more security and wellbeing and she will continue working and striving to achieve her great dream of seeing her little ones become good professionals.
