A loan helped a member to buy a bundle of mixed used clothing in Managua.


Cariño Group's story

The Cariño group is formed by three hard-working women. They organized themselves approximately three years ago with the goal of accessing financing with a solidarity guarantee in order to improve their quality of life through their little business ventures.

Santa is a young entrepreneur of 28 years of age and single. For 18 months she has sold used clothing on the veranda of her house made of wood, with the goal of helping her mother with the expenses of the household and education of her siblings,

She is applying for financing to buy a bundle of mixed used clothing in Managua and sell it at affordable prices to her clientele in the city of Bilwi, in the township of Puerto Cabezas. She dreams of having a prosperous business.

In this group: Aurelia Magdalena, Santa, Veronica
