A loan of $875 helped to invest in working capital and to buy materials to prepare tortillas, such as corn, firewood, lime, and plastic bags.

Rosa Amelia's story

Rosa Amelia is 49 years old. She is married but does not have any children. She lives in the department of Chinandega, which is located in the western part of the country. She runs her own business, which consists of a small grocery store and tortilla-making workshop, which she has run from her home for 26 years. She started the business with her own small savings in order to have a decent source of work and to help with the household expenses.

Rosa has already worked with Fundación and has shown responsibility in paying on time and in form. She will use this loan to invest in working capital and to stock her business by buying the materials to prepare her tortillas, such as corn, lime, firewood and plastic bags. Rosa is thankful for the help Kiva lenders provide to low income families and poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they too can have decent work.
