A loan of $600 helped to buy ingredients for her food preparation.

Rosa Del Socorro's story

Rosa, 57, is married with three adult, economically independent children. She’s from Managua located in the middle of the country. She’s noted for being a hardworking, responsible person who wants to improve personally. Sadly, because of the lack of economic resources she was unable to study and had to start working at a very young age.

Thanks to her efforts and her drive to get ahead her economic activity is selling food. The business is located in a specific place in the location. She offers home-cooked basic meals to students and workers in a nearby university zone. She’ spends about 9 hours daily at work offering such dishes as fried chicken, grilled meat, steamed meat, sautéed meat, chicken soup and ‘indio viejo’ [corn-based stew].

The object of the loan is to invest in working capital and to stock the business. She will buy food items so that in the not too distant future she can earn higher income. Rosa thanks Kiva lenders for the help they give to people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have a dignified way to earn a living.
