Mujeres En Marcha Group's story

This solidarity group is made up of 3 determined women (María Teresa, Stefanie Margiene and Amelia Beatriz) who joined together approximately a year and a half ago to process financing through loans with the guarantee of solidarity, to buy merchandise for their small businesses which are a grocery store, a jewelry shop, and used clothing respectively, and in that way be able to sell more and increase their incomes. They all want to be able to improve their life conditions to be able to cover their basic needs, to secure the education of their children, and to improve their homes.

MARIA TERESA: The coordinator of the solidarity group, she is a happy 54-year-old woman with dreams of self-improvement and leadership qualities, married with 5 children: 4 adults and a 15-year-old who is in his first year of high school. With the goal of having her own source of income and contributing to the household expenses and education of her children, she sells new clothing in a kiosk that she has in one of the markets of the municipality of Puerto Cabezas. She remembers with great happiness that she started traveling and selling water in little bags and thanks to the loans given by PANA PANA and financed by KIVA, she has been able to grow in her business little by little to improve the conditions of her family. She is requesting financing to buy new clothing in Managua: shirts, pants, undergarments for men and women. She dreams of being a wholesale vendor of used clothing.
