Manantial Group's story

Briseida is a woman who works in the enchiladas and tacos fried food business. In addition, she also makes and sells nacatamales [corn cakes filled with meat and vegetables and steamed in banana leaves] in the neighborhood where she lives. In the coffee season, she sells used clothing in the surrounding communities. She already has been doing this work for more than eleven years. Also, she has other income from remittances that her husband sends her from abroad. Her goal is to work to help bring up her two children.

With the last Kiva loan, she managed to buy raw materials at wholesale and at low prices to make nacatamales. She also bought a second hand bale of clothing. She is requesting another FUNDENUSE loan, always through Kiva, to invest in the nacatamales business.

She belongs to the Manantial Group together with María who works in the used and new clothing business and sells household cleaning products, with Santos who works selling used clothing, and with Denis who sells basic grains.
