Las Navideñas Group's story

This group is called “Las Navideñas," a communal bank whose members are responsible and punctual with their repayments. Every woman runs a different business including selling pork, selling food, and running a general store.

It is a rural communal bank in the community of El Tololar in León, Nicaragua. Reyna del Socorro (in the middle of the photograph, wearing a plaid shirt, with her hand raised) is 37 years old. She stands out from the group. She's a single mother and has a daughter who's in her fourth year of secondary school. She's had a life of struggle. She is requesting a loan to buy 4 pigs to raise and sell. She is counting on you to progress!
