Amada
Amada is an unassuming, a forty-eight-year-old homemaker. She's originally from Estelí but now lives in Managua. She's married, the mother of four children, and sells meals for a living. Due to poverty conditions where she lived, she managed to complete only high school. She started a business when she was thirty-eight with small loans from a financial institution that allowed her run her own mobile pizza business. It didn't generate much profit so she shut it down. Now Amada just sells food from her house and with a great deal of effort and tough work she's been successful with the business because it makes a daily profit. She has steady customers and has the support of her husband and daughter.

Amada needs a loan to buy rice, chicken, meat, oil, butter, and a display case so she'll have all the supplies she needs to make her delicious food. Among her future plans is to be able to improve her locale so it presents better and attracts more clientele.
