Nora Del Carmen's story

Nora is a 60-year old married woman who is originally from León, located in the west side of the country. She is a hard-working and responsible person and has a strong willingness of self-improvement. She likes to enjoy her children's company in her free time. Unfortunately, due to the lack of resources, she could not pursue her studies and started working to help with the household expenses when she was very young . Thanks to her hard work and willingness to get ahead, Nora has a grocery store in her house. She sells food products in small quantities, such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, detergent, soap and oil. She spends approximately 10 hours each day working at her business with the goal to improve her income in the near future. Nora is grateful to Kiva lenders for the support they provide to people with limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a decent source of income.
