Kiva Loan

As mentioned in a post earlier this week, I bookmarked all proceeds of a particular item in my Etsy shop to a Kiva loan for a small businessperson in Central America. The item just sold! So I've loaned $25 to a woman in Chinandega, Nicaragua. Thank you to new customer "S" for your purchase! Here are the details:

Mrs. Argentina Aguilera is dedicated to selling basic staples and grocery products, as well as meat and all things associated with a general grocery store. She has a great deal of experience since she has been running the business for four years. She has two children and is responsible for maintaining them and providing for all of their needs.

Currently Argentina is asking for a loan through Kiva from the micro-lending group Ceprodel in order to purchase products that she can sell in her grocery store. It is important to emphasize that her dream is to improve her business and thereby distinguish herself as an important businesswoman in the Somotillo sector of Chinandega, Nicaragua, where she is from.
