Yadira Del Socorro's story

Yadira del Socorro has four grown children and is from one of the towns in the Chinandega region located in the western part of the country. She is a micro entrepreneur who buys and sells general merchandise such as: various styles of new clothing, shoes, cosmetics, plastic products, and knick-knacks to order. She buys her merchandise for cash at markets in other areas of the country. Her sales are for cash and credit to steady and occasional customers by orders that she takes going door-to-door. She begins her workday very early, delivering her products and trying to get new customers.

The purpose of this loan is for working capital so she can buy different styles of new clothing for children and adults, trousers, cosmetics, shoes, and decorations, among other things, because demand is greater at this December holiday time. Yadira is very grateful for the support that Kiva investors provide to people of limited financial resources.
