Nuvia Xiomara's story

Nuvia, 36, is married and has four children who are 12, 15, 16 and 19 years old; she lives with her family in a village in the municipality of Esparta, Atlántida.

Nuvia is a very enterprising woman. She has two businesses: one is raising and selling pigs and the other is a grocery store where she sells staples like basic grains, dairy products, packaged snacks, cleaning supplies, medicine, juice, soft-drinks, etc. She opened the grocery store five years ago and she’s been in the pig business for three years. Her great motivator is to earn income and to strive with the businesses so that she can provide her children with the opportunity of having an education and improving themselves.

She’s asking for her second loan in the amount of 25,000 Lempiras to buy more pigs to fatten up and sell during the end of year season and also to buy chicks to raise which are also in high demand in her community. The previous loan helped her to generate profits and to stay in business. Her goal is to generate good income for her family’s wellbeing.
