Luisa Emilia's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a sack of corn, oil and leaves for wrapping tamales to make and sell traditional Nicaraguan dishes.

Luisa Emilia's story

Luisa is a charismatic, industrious and responsible woman who has managed to get ahead by selling Nicaraguan dishes. Through this work she has been able to get ahead since she was young. She is the mother of six children who are her fundamental support for getting ahead.

She is well aware of Kiva's work with MiCredito because she has benefitted from a loan that allowed her to grow a noticeable amount. She is very grateful and so trusting that she has requested a new loan which she plans to use to buy a sack of rice, oil and leaves to wrap tamales.

Her goal for the future is to be able to buy an industrial stove.
