A loan of $775 helped buy live pigs and food items for the home.

Maria Eddy's story

Maria Eddy is a single mother whose children have now left home. She is a native of one of the Chinandega municipalities located in the western part of the country. She is known for being a hardworking, responsible person with a great desire to get ahead in life.

Maria has a small business buying and selling pigs. Once a week she also sells tripe, fries, grilled meat, sausages, pork chops, meat, tamales etc. She also has store. Maria buys the supplies she needs on credit from markets and distribution trucks in nearby communities.

One of Maria’s dreams is to make improvements to her home and another is to expand her business. She will use this loan money to buy live pigs, and also to buy some items for the home such as rice, sugar, beans, and oil.

Maria Eddy is very grateful for the assistance that Kiva donors provide to poor people.
