A loan of $600 helped working capital.


Dolores's story

Dolores M. M. is 55 years old and single. Doña Dolores has 3 children, all of whom work. Her business is selling nacatamales (regional tamales from Nicaragua). She has been doing this for 10 years and from early on struggled to keep the business afloat which helped her pay for the education for her children. For this reason the goal of Doña Dolores is to improve the quality of her nacatamales so that she does not lose any customers, because without them she would not be able to generate income. The loan that Dolores is requesting is for working capital so she can buy ingredients and supplies such as corn, meat, firewood and other things. Her greatest dream is to establish a restaurant where she can serve her nacatamales.
