Maria Del Rosario's story

María del Rosario, 58, has opted to continue working selling ‘fritanga’ [Nicaraguan fast-food] every night, a traditional food of the country, and lunches. Her main buyers are neighbors. Her business is the main source of income to continue supporting her two children. One of them is still attending secondary school. She and her children have figured out ways to get ahead together since María is a widow and has no other economic support. With this fourth loan she will buy a food display case and products like rice, oil, meat, vegetables, chicken and fruit to make refreshments. Her future plan is to have an eatery that’s open 24 hours and to be able to hire more workers.
