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

A loan helped invest in raw material such as yellow and white glue, soles, fiber, Royal fabric, and EVA rubber.

La Hermita Group's story

The group "La Hermita" has demonstrated to be a responsible group making all their payments. They are loyal clients and have taken advantage of each requested loan. For the sixth time, the group is requesting a loan to develop their businesses.

Mayra is coordinating the loan request. She is 27 years old and married with 2 children, the youngest is 10 years old and her baby is 15 months old. Mayra has a shoe workshop where she handcrafts sandals and school shoes.

She will invest the loan in raw materials such as yellow and white glue, soles, fiber, Royal fabric, and EVA rubber to efficiently continue production.

The remainder members of the group are María, age 44, who sells crops and also prepares and sells nacatamales [Nicaraguan-style tamales], and Nelson, age 27, who sells condiments.
