A loan of $775 helped to stock her store.

Blanca Nidia's story

Blanca is 46 years old, has no children, and is from Sauce, an area located in the northern part of the country. She is known for being hardworking, responsible, and with a desire for personal success.

Unfortunately she was not able to study for a career due to lack of resources and she had to go to work at an early age.

Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, she has a small grocery store where she sells foodstuffs, such as rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, juices, soft drinks, eggs, and detergents. She works 10 hours a day out of her home, with a 20 kg bundle, which she does with lots of enjoyment, since this is how she earns a living. She will use the money from this loan to stock her store with foodstuff so that she can have a better income in the near future. Blanca is grateful to the Kiva lenders who provide persons of limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua with a dignified source of work.
