View original language description ↓
Claudia Everta N. is a woman originally from Chinandega state in Nicaragua. For over 18 years she has made different types of food to sell. She is a single mother with responsibility for a son.

Every day from very early in the morning, Mrs. N. buys the ingredients in Chinandega market to prepare the food. It is important to note that she is well-known for being an expert cook in her area.

Her food business has been improving since she sought loans with Ceprodel (20 loans over the past 2 years), and it is for this reason that she has been able to invest in the purchase of large quantities of food in order to continue being an excellent cook and mother.
