Estrella De Belen Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy 110 pounds (46 kg) of maize, for the sale of tortillas.

Estrella De Belen Group's story

The community association Estrella de Belén is made up of ten members, nine women and one man. They are fathers and mothers, who are responsible for 20 children between them. Currently, they have a daily struggle to make a success of their businesses and make a living for their families.

The coordinator of the community association is Corina, and she has a business making and selling tortillas from her home. The aim of the loan is to invest in working capital and to stock her shop so that in the not-too-distant future she can gain greater profits.

Estrella de Belén is grateful for the help given by Kiva lenders to people with limited resources in poor countries like Nicaragua, so that they can make a dignified living.
