Dolores Del Socorro's story

Dolores is an adult woman, married with one 18 month-old daughter who is in her care. She is a teacher and active employee of the Ministry of Education. She began her business when she was in school to help with the cost of her studies and in this manner she succeeded in completing them.

Since that time she has made a living selling a variety of merchandise including clothing, shoes and cosmetics. She purchases supplies in Chinandega, buying in cash, and selling on foot for cash and on credit. She is requesting a loan for working capital for her business, now that she needs to invest more in her business to satisfy the demand of her customers, improve her income and have a better quality of life.

Dolores appreciates the support that the Kiva investors offer to people of low economic means.
