A loan of $1,675 helped a member to invest in working capital and supply her business selling bread, cakes, pastries, rolls, and other treats.

El Triunfo Group's story

The El Triunfo village bank has eight members: seven women and one man. All of them are parents with children in their care. They are from Sauce, in the north of the country. They are hardworking and responsible people who strive to better themselves. Unfortunately, their lack of financial resources prevented them from studying, and they have had to work from a young age. Thanks to their spirit and their desire to live a better life, the bank's leader is Graciela, who sells bread door to door carrying a twenty-kilogram basket on her head. This loan will supply baked goods for her to sell, including cakes, pastries, rolls, and other treats. El Triunfo is grateful for the help that Kiva's lenders offer people with few resources and poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have a dignified way of earning a living.
