Rode Maria's story

Rode is 35 years old. She is married with two children, ages 9 and 18, who are under her responsibility. They are studying at university and in elementary school. She is originally from Carazo, which is located in the northern area of the region. Rode is known for being hardworking and responsible and striving to improve herself. In her free time, Rode enjoys spending time with her children. She fights day by day to offer them a better future.

Thanks to her effort and her hopes to get ahead, she has had a pharmacy located in her house for 15 years. She started the business with a little bit of money that she had saved. Little by little, with a lot of effort, she stocked her pharmacy. Rode works her business 10 hours a day, offering her products, an activity that she performs with pleasure. Her goal for the loan is to stock her pharmacy with ethical and generic products, such as acetaminophen, diclofenac, talerdin, corilin, dolo-vitalgia, cardiosar, losartan, glibenclamida, ibuprofen, Kidi, and Scott's emulsion, so that she can have better income in the near future. Rode is thankful for the help that Kiva investors offer to people with scarce resources and to countries such as Nicaragua to have a means of good work.
