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

A loan helped to purchase pumps, atomizers, and fungicides with insecticides.

La Peineta Group's story

This is the communal bank "La Peineta" formed by borrowers from León, Nicaragua. They have stayed together for six loan cycles, to continue ahead with their businesses of selling insecticides, selling vegetables, grocery stores, and raising pigs.

Maria Esperanza (the woman in the middle of the photo, in the red dress) is 30 years old. She is married, and has three children. She and her husband complement each other; he does the housework and for 17 years, she has worked selling chemical products and fumigation pumps. With the loan, she will invest in pumps, atomizers, and fungicides with insecticides. "My dream is to enlarge my business to educate my children," she says.

She counts on you to keep making progress!
