A loan of $275 helped to buy a cow to butcher.


Carmen Alvarado's story

Carmen has a stall in the El Bisne Market in Chinandega. Since Carmen sells meat to her customers, her stall or “tramo” is located near all the other meat sellers. Carmen is requesting a loan to buy a cow that she will butcher. After she butchers the animals, she sells the meat by the pound. She has been working in her meat stall for the past 6 years.



Before she began selling meat, Carmen had many other jobs, but she was always working for someone else. Now with the loans she has her own business which allows her to support herself and offer quality services to her customers.
