Vidaldina's story

Vidaldina is a mature, single woman with three children that she still cares for. She is from a municipality in the north of Chinandega, which is located on the west side of the country. She owns a small grocery store that is located in her home, where she sells merchandise to the public such as rice, sugar, beans, oil, snacks, detergent, and toilet paper, among other products. The goods will be bought with cash in local markets. The sales are in cash. She also owns a grinder and she sells grinding services to the community. She begins work at the grinder at four in the morning, closing late. She has many regular clients and other occasional clients.
This credit will be used to invest in her business with the purchase of household goods and to get maintenance done on her grinder.
Vidaldina is very thankful for the support that Kiva lenders offer to people with scarce resources.
