Candida Del Rosario's story

Candida del Rosario is a single adult woman who is a native of the municipality of Chinandega, an area in the western part of the country. She is known for being a hardworking, responsible, and enterprising woman who has managed to get ahead on her own and support her family from a very early age. Candida has a business selling general merchandise, such as: cosmetics, shoes, a variety of new clothing, plastic products, dresses, pants, and other items. She's had this business for 21 years, and she carries out her working selling from place to place. Her daily routine starts very early in the morning, when she goes out to offer her products to her regular and occasional customers. She makes her purchases in cash in the various municipalities in the country. She sells on both a cash and credit basis to all of her customers, and she also takes advance orders from them.

Candida's goal with this loan is to invest in working capital, purchasing a variety of styles of clothing, shoes, cosmetics, and other items. In this way, she can stock up her business so that she will have better products for her customers and fill the orders that she already has. Candida is grateful for the support that the Kiva lenders are offering to low-income people.
