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

A loan helped to stock her store with basic grains and vegetables.

Lirio De Los Valles Group's story

Meet the Lirio de los Valles communal bank, with its 10 members, natives of the community of Los Tololos, Chinandega, Nicaragua. They have been close and enthusiastic in their credit group. They work selling nacatamales, new and used clothing, groceries, and baked goods.

Margelis del Socorro (the fourth person on the right, in jeans and a gray shirt), 38, is married and has four children, three of them in school already. She has had her business selling groceries and various products for 15 years.

A new loan will enable her to stock the merchandise in her store with basic grains and vegetables.

Her dream is to keep on helping her children professionally and to provide for her business, which will help with her household expenses.

Help them to keep making progress!
