Nelson Antonio's story

Nelson Antonio, 32, is a single father of two minors. He’s from Malpaisillo, a place located in the country’s northern zone. Nelson’s noted for being a hardworking, responsible man with a strong self-improvement drive.

Nelson’s activity is selling traditional crafts from his area like clay pots, piggy banks, bracelets, clay kitchen ware, urns, vases, etc. in neighboring Costa Rica. He learned the business from his parents for the business is a family tradition.

He needs financing to invest in working capital for the crafts buying and selling business so that in the not too distant future income will rise. Nelson is grateful for the support Kiva lenders provide to people of low income in poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have ways to earn a living with dignity.
