Alma Lucia's story

Alma Lucia is 54 years old and married, with five children who are all grown-ups. She is from the town of Chinandega, in the west of the country. She owns two businesses, one selling food in a local market and the other a carpentry workshop located in her home. This isn't her first loan with León 2000.

Alma is an enterprising woman, who has managed to make a success of things through her own hard work. The purpose of this loan is to buy raw materials such as wood and screws to make furniture including beds, wardrobes, and comfortable chairs. Her customers can pay her in cash or credit, which she collects on a weekly, fortnightly and monthly basis. She has regular and prospective clients. Alma is very grateful for the support given to people with low incomes by Kiva lenders.
