A loan of $450 helped to buy lime and salt.


María José's story

María sells lime and salt in the north of Nicaragua to coffee and vegetable producers, hardware stores, and ranchers in the area. She started her business with financial support from her father, who also has made a living in this business for many years.

Nevertheless, she needs a loan to be able to handle the demand for lime and salt, so she can deliver these products more quickly.

She has a common-law spouse, who helps her attend to this business. She has a preschool-age child and her income is to pay for the household expenses.
