A loan of $800 helped to buy a cookstove and all of the necessary ingredients to prepare her food.


Vidal Dolores's story

Vidal, age 56, works selling food. She has operated this business for 15 years. She was born in Somoto in the municipality of Estelí. She started her business with her own money and the help of some nephews who live outside the country. Her food stall has gradually grown over time. She is satisfied with the place where she sells the food, since the demand is high thanks to its location by the city's bus station. She applied for the loan to buy a cookstove and also to buy all of the ingredients she needs to prepare her food. This loan will help her because she will be able to invest in necessary items for her business and give good service to her customers. One of her future plans is to buy a shop where she can set up her business and stop paying rent.
