Felicita Del Socorro's story

Felicita del Socorro is 51 years old. She is a single mother with four children. She is from León, which is located on the western side of the country. She is characterized as being a hard-working, responsible woman who strives for personal improvement. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family. Unfortunately, she was never able to complete a university degree as she felt obligated to work from an early age to help with household expenses.

Thanks to her efforts and her desire to get ahead, she has been able to maintain, as her main economic activity, a small grocery store where she sells small quantities of food products such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, and eggs, and also sells detergent, oil, juice, soft drinks, and matches. She works in her shop for 12 hours a day. She would like to use the loan to invest in working capital to supply her business in the buying and selling of food products so that in the near future she will be able to obtain higher profits. Felicita is thankful for the help that the Kiva lenders give to people with scarce resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua to have a decent working environment.
