Paulita Isidra's story

Paulita Isidra is older and has five grown children. She's from one of the municipalities of Chinandega, located in the western part of the country. It's predominated by businesses, fish, and its beautiful beaches. Paulita Isidra is a micro businesswoman who owns a grocery where she sells home consumables like rice, beans, sugar, frozen goods, detergents, milk, shampoo, soft drinks, candy, toilet paper, Maggi-brand soups, cosmetics, underclothing, children's outfits, blouses, etc. She sells for cash, the same way she buys from various distributors that visit her store. She's had the store for a number of years.

Paulita Isidra starts her work day very early and quits pretty late so she can provide better service to her clients. She's known for being a very hardworking woman who is responsible with her payments. She plans to use this loan to invest in working capital to stock up her store with consumable products to serve her clientele better. She is very happy with the support offered by Kiva lenders to those with few financial resources.
