A loan of $1,475 helped to buy clothes to sell.

Maria Concepcion's story

María’s a widow with a minor son; she’s from León, a place located in the west of the country. She’s noted for being hardworking, responsible with a strong self-improvement drive. She likes to spend her free time enjoying her little boy. Sadly, for lack of economic resources and because she needed to start working at a young age to help with household expenses she was unable to attend university.

Thanks to her effort and wish to get ahead, her economic activity is selling new clothes like pants, blouses, dresses, towels, bed linens, underwear, shorts and children’s clothes. She spends about 10 hours daily selling her goods.

The loan will be used for working capital to stock her business so that in the not too distant future she will earn higher income. María is grateful to Kiva lenders who provide support to people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have ways to earn a living with dignity.
