Lidia
Lidia, 55, is originally from Matagalpa but currently lives in Managua. She’s a humble woman who wants to improve. She strives daily to get ahead with her family. She’s married and mother of a 12-year-old son. She’s a merchant by profession; she works making and selling nacatamales [Nicaraguan style tamales]. She’s owned the business for more than 18 years.

She started working very young helping her mother make nacatamales. That was where she gained experience and total command of the business. Once she got married and became independent, she decided to continue with the same business selling nacatamales. She says she feels very satisfied because this business generates daily profits since she has regular customers. Her son and husband help her with the business.

Her expectation is to continue growing in the business. She needs financing to buy meat, rice, potatoes, lard, leaves and firewood-all the raw materials needed to make her delicious nacatamales-with the objective of increasing sales and earning higher profits.
