A loan of $800 helped to stock her store.

Martha Lorena's story

Martha Lorena is elderly, married, and has two children under her care. She is from Chinandega, located in the west part of the country and has a small company where she sells general merchandise, such as shirts, pants, book bags, purses, shoes, and other things. She makes her purchases in cash at the city market and sells for cash or credit to steady and new customers. She gets up very early to go out and offer her products on foot. Her goal for this loan is to stock her business and be able to cover her customer orders for things like book bags, sandals, wallets, uniforms, etc. Martha Lorena is grateful to the Kiva lenders for the help they provide people from poor countries like Nicaragua.
