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


A loan helped to buy chicken, pork and beef as well as banana leaves, potatoes and corn.


Carmen's story

The best nacatamales (Nicaraguan tamales) are made by Carmen. They are made from corn, potatoes, meat and mint. All her customers wait for the weekend to taste this delicious dish typical of Nicaragua. It is served every morning with bread or tortillas accompanied by a hot café de palo (roasted corn coffee) from the region. With her previous loan she managed to buy supplies wholesale to make her nacatamales, and she obtained excellent profits.

With the hope of continuing to grow her business, she is requesting a loan from Micrédito with the support from Kiva so she can buy chicken, pork and beef as well as banana leaves, potatoes and corn to make her nacatamales. In the not too distant future she would like to open an eatery in her house.
