A loan helped a member to buy second-hand clothing, shoes, and sheets, to have greater variety and increase sales.


30 De Mayo Group's story

Esther Elizabeth (in the center, wearing a gray t-shirt and blue jeans) is the treasurer of the communal bank "30 de Mayo" of Pro Mujer in Nicaragua. She has belonged to this community for three years that allowed her to start a business. Esther sells second-hand clothing, shoes, and sheets. This business supports her family. Her husband is a mechanic and they have a baby.

Lack of funds is a challenge for merchants, above all during the country's financial and health crisis. With your financial support, Esther will use the loan to buy second-hand clothing, shoes, and sheets, so she will have greater variety and will increase her sales.

In this group: Mayra Lorena, Esther Elizabeth, Concepcion Del Carmen, Xiomara Del Carmen, Alis Maykelin, Yelba Del Carmen, Maritza Del Socorro, Kelly Nazareth
