La Guadalupana Casa Quemada Group's story

Petronila, 57, is married and the mother of ten children, of whom only two are still in her care. She works making rosquillas [a type of doughnut] and hornados [a baked good], which is a business she started when she was very young. She learned from her grandmother, who had the same business, and she is now helped by her children and husband. She has also worked making and selling nacatamales [Nicaraguan tamales] and making curd, but now only hornados.

Her next goal is to make improvements to the oven in which she makes her products. With her previous loan, she successfully increased her sales and profits. She is requesting a loan from FUNDENUSE with Kiva funds to buy ingredients. She belongs to the solidarity group La Guadalupana Casa Quemada along with Mary, who has a chicken farm, Rosibel, who makes fried food, and Santos, who has a small grocery store.
