A loan of $825 helped to buy live pigs for her business making pork products and dishes.


Rosa Maria's story

Rosa Maria, 64, is married and has 5 grown children. She lives in the municipality of Malpaisillo, and is known to be a hardworking and responsible person who has a desire for personal success. She has a business butchering pigs and selling livestock. Rosa Maria's routine is to go out to buy pigs in the outlying communities that she can slaughter so that she can sell pork products, including: meat, pork rinds, fried pork skin, fried pork, marinated pork, fried pork bits, and pig's blood sausage. These are all traditional dishes in this region.

Rosa Maria works in her business 8 hours a day, and she carries out the food preparation in her home. She needs this loan to buy live pigs so that in the near future she can have more income. Rosa Maria is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders are providing to low-income people in poor countries like Nicaragua.
