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

A loan helped to buy school uniforms: pants, blouses, skirts, socks, and sport shirts.

Pastorcitas Group's story

Pastorcitas Group is made up of six hardworking and enterprising women who decided to form a solidarity group to invest in their businesses, be able to grow financially, and help their families get ahead.

Margarita, 26, is the coordinator. She's in a relationship and has two children in her care. She has worked for four years selling new clothing for women and men.

This is her second loan cycle in which she's requesting financing from ADIM to invest in her business with a purchase of school uniforms for children and teenagers: pants, blouses, skirts, socks, and sport shirts. Her goal is to increase her profits, because the school year is approaching and her customers have ordered uniforms for their children.

Her associates: Rosa, 36, buys and sells crops and works in carpentry; Vanessa, 33, sells new clothing; Felipa, 59, sells fruits and vegetables; Ana, 31, makes and sells nacatamales; and Paola, 25, sells pinolillo (a sweet traditional Nicaraguan beverage made mainly of toasted white corn and cacao seeds) and also sells shoes.
