Consuelo Del Socorro's story

A saleswoman, Consuelo is the owner of a small grocery store. She lives in the city of Managua. She shares her experience of the benefits from her first Kiva loan; she had the opportunity to stock her business more, as she bought toys, cleaning products, snacks etc., all products that her clients consume on a daily basis and that she can't be without. She is grateful to have been allowed the financing when she needed it and thus make her business grow.

She currently needs financing to buy basic grains, dairy products, detergents, bleach, toilet paper, oatmeal, canned goods, shampoo, bath soaps, etc. Her intention is to keep expanding her grocery store through the purchase of more products and to maintain her stable and prosperous business that allows her to get her family ahead.
