Yadira Sonia's story

Yadira Sonia, 45, is married and has two children who are 12 and 6 years old and attending school. Yadira is from Chinandega Department, a place in the west of the country noted for being a very productive commercial zone. Yadira’s activity is butchering pigs to sell pork for ‘nacatamales’ [Nicaraguan style tamales] which is one of the country’s traditional dishes. She’s been doing this activity for 14 years. It consists in going out to neighboring communities to buy the pigs that she subsequently butchers to sell nacatamales she makes herself; she sells them from place to place in various districts and to neighbors and she also sells them at home. She’s requesting this financing to buy pigs to make nacatamales. Yadira Sonia is grateful for the help Kiva lenders provide for people of scarce resources from poor countries so they can have dignified ways of earning a living.
