Paz Y Amor Las Carolinas Group's story

Meet the Paz y Amor Las Carolinas communal bank from Jinotepe, Nicaragua. Esther del Socorro (in front, wearing a floral blouse and black pants) is the president and one of its featured clients.

Esther is a responsible 40-year-old woman. Her partner is a master builder. Her primary goal, towards which she works every day, is to manage a bookstore in the future. While her dreams take shape, she counts on your financial support to stock her small shop selling beverages, ice cream, chocolate-covered bananas, and ice.

Esther has learned to fight for herself. The loans allow her to advance.

Give her the boost she needs to move forward!
