Sara Biviana's story

Sara Biviana is an older married woman who has seven children who live on their own. She's from the town of Chinandega, located in the western part of the country.

Sara's known for being an enterprising, responsible, and hardworking woman who very much wants to improve herself personally and professionally. This small businesswoman makes a living selling used and new clothing: pants, shoes, skirts, t-shirts, dresses, socks, and shorts. She carries out her business on foot and at home, selling products to steady customers for cash and credit, which she collects biweekly. Sara begins her work day very early and finishes at the end of the afternoon.

The goal of this new loan is to strengthen her working capital with a quality purchase of bundles of clothing and new clothing such as shoes and a variety of styles of outfits for men, women, and children. This way Sara will make the most of the major sales in the month of December, because she has several customer requests.

Sara's grateful for the support that Kiva lenders give to low-income people. One of her dreams is to be able to improve her home; she also wants to expand her business more.
