A loan of $1,500 helps to purchase pork in bulk, wrapping leaves, rice, corn, tomatoes, and onions.


Sonia's story

Sonia is a 34-year-old merchant who, for ten consecutive seasons, has worked selling chicharrón [pork rinds] and pork with the help of her spouse. She is the mother of three young children who have given her all the necessary strength to continue struggling on, realizing each one of her worthy desires.

Sonia has chosen financing from Kiva and MiCrédito to purchase pork in bulk, wrapping leaves, rice, corn, tomatoes, and onions, with the end of starting to make and sell Nicaraguan tamales and to make it known through social media. In the short term, Sonia has as a mission to transform her business into a very busy eatery.
