Sara Elizabeth's story

Sara is 27 years old, single, with no children. She is originally from Managua, a city situated in the center of the country. She sells cosmetics, a business she started five years ago, out of the necessity of having work and making money. She enjoys spending time with her family in her spare time, enjoying some of the traditional dishes of the region like Nacatamal. Unfortunately, due to the lack of money she could not study for a career. She had to work from a young age to help pay the household expenses.

Thanks to her effort and desire to get ahead, Sara has a business selling cosmetics such as lipstick, blush, eye-shadow, eye-liner, body cream, lotion, make-up remover and acetone nail polish. She has requested this loan to invest in working capital and stock her business so that in the near future she will make more revenue. Sara is grateful for the support Kiva lenders offer people of limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua, so they can have a dignified livelihood.
