Janett Del Socorro's story

Janet, 47, is from León which is located in the western part of the country. She is known as a hard-working, responsible person with a desire for personal development.

Thanks to her efforts of 16 years she earns a living as a seamstress in the workshop set up in her home. She spends 12 hours a day keeping up with customer demand. The purpose of the loan is to buy sewing supplies such as fabric, thread, buttons, zippers, needles, spools, ribbon and lining fabric so she can earn more income in the near future.

Janet is grateful to Kiva lenders for the help they give people with low incomes in poor countries such as Nicaragua have decent work.
