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


A loan helped to buy shelves to display merchandise and to buy staple goods to sell.


Las Leydis Group's story

Communal bank Las Leydis is comprised of eight borrowers who live in Chinandega, Nicaragua. They are in their seventh lending cycle and are a very organised and responsible group. They have various businesses: clothes, cosmetics, bakery, grocery store.
Ileana Leonor (in the middle, wearing jeans and a white shirt) is married and has two children of school-going age. She is very appreciated in her group because she cooperates and does her utmost to improve her lot in life. The loan will be used to buy merchandise to sell (rice, beans, sugar, cooking oil, hygiene products) as well as to buy shelves to display those goods.
She counts on lenders to keep improving her business.
