A loan of $300 helped to buy land and pigs.


Irma Marina's story

Irma is 32 years old and the single mother of three children, ages 14, 10, and 6. Irma is originally from Sauce, a place located in the northern area of the country. Irma has been raising and selling pigs out of her home for six years. She started this business because she needed a source of income to be able to help with the household expenses.

Irma has proven her responsibility to repay her previous loans on time. Her objective for this loan is to invest in her business by buying land and pigs to rise and sell. Irma is grateful to the Kiva investors who help people with limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they will have sources of dignified work.
