A loan of $750 helped make improvements to the convenience store.

Wilson's story

Wilson is 40 years, married and has two children ages 3 and 1. His wife does not have a job but she helps oversee his businesses. He has two of them: a convenience store is his main source of income and an internet cafe is another source. Wilson intends to acquire more computers and set up the internet cafe with all the amenities so he can meet demand since it's in one of the newest and fastest growing neighborhoods. He's been involved in the business for two years. Previously he was living in Matagalpa, but he got married in Leon and started his family there. With the loan he expects to invest in the convenience store and little by little improve the business' conditions, and this way he can improve his family's economic situation as well and make headway with the support of Kiva and the friendly hands looking to support his business ideas.
