A loan of $725 helped purchase pigs and supplies for making Nicaraguan tamales.


Aura Luz's story

Aura Luz is 50 years old. She butchers pigs and prepares Nicaraguan tamales to earn a living. With some effort, she was gradually able to generate more income through her business to maintain her household. Aura Luz works from 5am to 8pm every day of the week since her customers are placing more orders. She operates her business from her modest home.


At the moment, Aura Luz is requesting a loan to use as operating capital to buy pigs. She will also purchase ingredients and supplies for making Nicaraguan tamales such as banana leaves, cornmeal, and plastic bags.
