Anita Guillermina's story

Anita Guillermina is originally from the municipality of Chinandega in the west of Nicaragaua. She is a hard-working and responsible woman with a desire to get ahead. Unfortunately, for financial reasons, Anita was unable to finish her education as she had to help with the household costs. Previously Anita worked selling scrap metal but, with a new loan, she has decided to start a grocery store in her home where she will sell small quantities of household goods such as sachets of coffee and shampoo, tomato sauce, oil, rice, beans, juices, bread, eggs, salt, sugar, milk, frozen products and more. Anita's day starts very early when she opens her grocery store to tend to her customers. This loan will be used to invest in working capital and stock up her business with consumable goods such as rice, sugar, beans, oil, detergents, sweets, toilet paper, frozen goods, and more. Anita is grateful for the help Kiva lenders provide to poor people in order for them to have a decent job and to poor countries such as Nicaragua.
