A loan helped a member to stock her convenience store with staple grains, personal hygiene products, and meats, among other items.


Enmanuel Group's story

These entrepreneurs are from Emanuel, a communal bank of Pro Mujer in Jinotepe, Nicaragua. They need a loan to boost their businesses selling firewood, tamales and drinks; and running small stores, among others.

Fatima del Socorro (pictured in the middle dressed in a black shirt and pink pants) is 28 years old and one of the members. She is considered a leader in her community. Her partner is a security guard, and she has an 11-year-old daughter.

"To make my business grow and set up another in the city is my dream," she says. Meanwhile, she needs a loan to stock her convenience store with staple grains, personal hygiene products, and meats, among other items. This hardworking woman also sells clothes and sets up a food stand on the weekend to improve her financial stability.

Take these women at their word. A loan will empower them and help them meet their personal goals.
