A loan helped a member to buy a drum of oil, rice, sugar, soap, and other hygiene products for her convenience store.


Fernando Oviedo Group's story

Maria Delfina (pictured sitting) is 74 years old. She belongs to the Fernando Oviedo communal bank from Chinandega, Nicaragua.

She lives with her husband. Both of them are elderly.

She is a hard-working woman. She runs her convenience store, and she needs a loan to put into the business.

She will buy a drum of oil, rice, sugar, soap, and other hygiene products to sell.

The proceeds from the loans are María Delfina's means of living, and she depends on them for her food and her health expenses.

They're counting on your support!
