A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a diesel-powered grinder.

Norma Isabel's story

Norma is twenty-nine years old, married, and has three children. She sells ground coffee and also provides a grinding service in Pueblo Nuevo, Estelí, where she lives. She started this business one year ago, with her own funds and thanks to loans from other institutions. She bought her first grinder, which she uses to grind things such as coffee beans, toasted maize, and sweetcorn. Before that, she used to make bread and natacamales (a Nicaraguan delicacy made of sweetcorn dough and other ingredients wrapped in plaintain leaves). With the objective of reaching other towns, she asks for a loan to buy a diesel-powered grinder. Thus, she will be able to offer this service to other towns, increasing her income and giving her children a brighter future.
