María de los Ángeles T. is a hard-working woman who prepares food, like nacatamales (typical Nicaraguan tamales wrapped in banana leaves). She prepares the nacatamales every weekend and several customers buy from her because she's an excellent cook in Chinandega department.

She is asking for funding to buy pork, firewood, corn and other nacatamal ingredients. She hopes the loan will be approved so that she can meet her household's needs.
