In the wholesale market of Managua,
Is a shoeseller named Arlen Moraga.
I think, on the whole
It's good for the sole,
To be well-heeled in Nicaragua!

Is Arlen a snappy dresser or what?

Perhaps Guy Lombardo put the case a leetle better than I:

Managua, Nicaragua, what a wonderful spot,
There's coffee and bananas and a temperature hot;
So take a trip and on a ship go sailing away,
Across the agua to Managua, Nicaragua, olé! olé!

Located on the link of land connecting the two Americas, Nicaragua has had several capital cities since gaining independence, and at last, in a compromise between the two rivals of León and Granada, the capital was settled on an indigenous community halfway between, on the pleasant shores of Lake Managua, and the new city is now ten times larger than either of the rivals.

Heading down to the mall to look through Myers or Macys is not really the way they do things throughout the developing world. You want clothing - or a meal or a haircut or a chicken - you look through the market. Here you'll find Arlen, swinging her merchandise direction from clothing to shoes with far more ease and grace than Grace Brothers.

Her Kiva loan requests have been modest, and her bright clothing and anxious smiles have brought her global support. Smile, and the world smiles with you!

Kiva - loans that change lives

You're right - that *is* an eye-catching ensemble. You need a bit of flair to set yourself up in business! I've been thinking about joining Kiva myself. I reckon I can afford $25...
