Mirian Del Socorro's story

Mirian del Socorro was born in Nagarote and is a single mother caring for her children. She is hardworking and responsible and wants to succeed. She enjoys her children's company in her free time. Sadly, she lacked the money to go to college and started to work at an early age to help pay household expenses. With effort and the desire to succeed, Miriam runs a store, where she sells merchandise such as clothing, cosmetics, thread, ribbon, costume jewelry, diapers, baby clothing, and hair accessories. Her business is in her house, and she works 12 hours a day selling her merchandise so that she can earn more income. Miriam thanks Kiva lenders, who offer low-income people in poor countries like Nicaragua the chance for decent work.
