I would love to try her empanadas! Here is some information about Dona Alejandrina from her Kiva page:Doña Alejandrina is 54 years old, married, and has three children who are independent. She lives in a neighborhood in the town of Choloma, Cortes.
Doña Alejandrina is a hardworking woman who has managed her own business for approximately 20 years. She prepares and sells baked goods such as cakes, donuts, empanadas, and cookies. Alejandrina also makes tamales by order and sews garments whenever she is asked. She reinvests her earnings so that she can maintain a stable business.
Doña Alejandrina has decided to request a loan of 10,000 HNL so that she can buy ingredients such as flour, shortening, sugar, yeast, eggs, and milk for making bread. With this investment, she will be able to complete a large order that has been submitted by her customers. Her goal is to generate income for completing the payment of her house and for continuing to grow her business. For more information, click here
