Janett Del Socorro's story

Janett del Socorro is forty-eight years old, is married, and has one son who is fourteen years old and is studying in school. She is originally from la Paz Centro, an area that is located in the western part of the country. La Paz Centro is known for its typical food and drink, like el quesillo (fresh cheese) and el tiste (drink made from cacao and corn). Janett has demonstrated that she is a hardworking and responsible person who pays her installments; she has demonstrated this in her previous loans.

Thanks to her drive to move forward and to offer the best economic conditions to her son, she makes a living in the buying and selling of pigs; she also butchers pigs to offer pork products like: nicaraguan tamales, pork rinds, pork-stuffed cassava, pork skin, pickled pork, fried pork, pork bits, and black pudding. She has been dedicated to this business for eleven years. Her business is located in the house where she lives, and she sells door-to-door.

The purpose of her loan is to invest in working capital and in the purchase of a batch of live pigs that she can sell at a good price. In doing this, she will be able to have better revenues in the near future.

Janett del Socorro is thankful for the help that the Kiva investors have offered to people from scarce resources and poor countries, like Nicaragua, in order to have a means of dignified work.
