A loan of $600 helped to invest in working capital and stock her business with the purchase and sale of children's clothing.


Yaritza Del Carmen's story

Yaritza, 35 years old, originally from León, and a single mother with a young daughter, can be characterized as being hard working, responsible, with the desire to improve herself. This young woman has a great desire to improve herself, so she commits herself one hundred percent in her business because she wants to see her business and her income grow, in order to have better economic stability and offer a better future to her little daughter.

Thanks to her efforts and her wish to get ahead, she has as her business the sale of children's clothing such as dresses, skirts, pants, shirts, shorts, socks, underwear, and she sells them in her home and as a street vendor. She works in this business some ten hours a day, offering her merchandise to regular and occasional customers. The objective of the loan is to invest in working capital and to stock her business so that in the not so distant future she can have more income. Yaritza is thankful for the help the Kiva investors offer to people with limited resources and in poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they have have a dignified means of work.
