A loan of $600 helped to invest in products like sodas, lattes, juice, natural soft drinks, and pastries.

Jeanette Del Socorro's story

Jeanette, who is 26 years old, is a single mother of two young children. She is from El Sauce, which is located in the northern area of the region. She is known for being hardworking, responsible, and driven to improve herself. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to get a higher education, but she would have liked to study Business Administration. Currently, she works hard every day in order to give her children a better future.

Her effort and drive enabled her to start her own business, a snack stand located in her home, where she sells sodas, lattes, juice, natural refreshments, and pastries. She dedicates about ten hours a day to her business, offering her products to customers. The purpose of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business, so that she can earn higher income in a not-too-distant future.

Jeanette is grateful for the help Kiva lenders offer people with limited financial resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so they can earn a decent living.
