Kenia Rafaela's story

Kenia has a small grocery store and also sells fruits and vegetables. She has had the store for the past seven years. In the beginning she started with some savings and the help of her husband. She sold candies and basic grains, and with her earnings she increased her inventory. Kenia is 29 years old and lives in a neighborhood called 380 in the capital of Managua. She has 3 children, who are 7, 8 and 10 years old and attend the primary school in their neighborhood. Her husband works in construction. She wants this loan to invest in basic grains, soda pop, and hygiene products that Nicaraguans use on a daily basis. Kenia is happy because thanks to the loans she has received from Afodenic, she has been able to keep her business active and to maintain her clientele. Her plans are to open a distributors where she can sell a variety of products.
