Brisa Del Mar Group's story

Brisas del Mar is a communal bank made up of eight clients from Jinotepe, Nicaragua, who after nine loan cycles still cooperate to strengthen their businesses: selling clothing and cosmetics, a grocery store, and a bakery.

Nubia del Socorro (in the middle of the photo: print blouse with an orange sweater) is 60 years old. She's married and has nine children, one of them of school age. She has distinguished herself for her empathy and cooperation with the rest of the group.

Her business is a bakery. She has 40 years in the market and it has enabled her to be her own boss, run the business, and put food on her table.

The loan she requested will allow her to expand her inventory of flour, shortening, butter, cheese, and sugar so she can produce more bread.

Help her realize her dream of expanding her business so she can continue to generate progress in her community!
