A loan helped to buy pigs to process and make the most of the meat.


Nicolasa's story

Nicolasa is a 58 year old single mother. Nicolasa discovered in the processing of pork meat the means to obtain income to support her family. She has many years of experience in processing pork and transforming it into food products like nacatamales (a traditional food of NIcaragua), enchiladas, fried pork, and marinated pork amongst others.

For this reason she is requesting a loan with funds from Kiva to buy a pig in optimal condition to slaughter and make the most of the meat.
