Judith Vanessa
Judith is a modest young woman of 24, who has the desire to succeed. She is from León, single, and the mother of a son. She has a small business selling nacatamales (Nicaraguan stuffed tamales), of which she has been the proprietor for more than five years. She has university-level academic studies in tourism, but due to her financial circumstances, she did not manage to finish her degree.

She started her business five years ago, selling firewood with her mother's help. She needed a way to support herself and be independent by generating income on her own. This was how she decided to set up her own business selling nacatamales. It was very difficult in the beginning, because she started with a barrel, a cauldron, and four stones that form the humble fire where she cooks her delicious nacatamales. That was how she began her difficult work of selling nacatamales with very little resources.

Now, she and her mother have succeeded in keeping the business stable. She sells as a street vendor and from her home.

Her hope is that her business grows, and to get more customers this way. She needs the loan to buy firewood, meat, cooking oil, corn, onions, etc.
