A loan of $750 helped to buy whole chickens and chicken parts.


Agueda De Jesus's story

Águeda de Jesús is an older adult, single mother from León, a place located in the western part of the country. She’s noted for being hardworking, responsible, of good habits; she had to start working at an early age to help with household expenses.

Thanks to her spirit and the drive to move forward, her economic activity is selling whole chickens and chicken parts. The activity is home-based. In the photo she can be seen with her freezers where she stores the chicken to sell to her customers.

The objective of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business with the purchase and sale of whole chicken and chicken parts so that in the not too distant future she can earn higher income.

She spends about 10 hours daily in her business and she does so gladly. Águeda is very grateful to Kiva lenders who provide support to people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have a dignified way of earning a living.
