A loan of $775 helped a member to make piñatas.

Concepcion Group's story

The members of the Concepción group are María Concepción, Rosalía and Degsy Scarleth who are hard-working, entrepreneurial women from Managua. This group has been working with Adim for eight loan cycles and they have had three Kiva loans which they have used to grow their businesses.

The group's coordinator is 64 year-old Concepción who decorates and makes handicrafts. She has been doing this since she was young and, over time, she has perfected her skills. For more than 32 years, she has owned a small sewing and decorations business. Over the last two years, she has taken on a new challenge, making piñatas. She will invest her loan money in this business, buying materials such as clay pots, newspaper, white glue, crepe paper, piñata sticks, etc.

30 year-old Rosalía sells new and used clothes and cosmetics and 29 year-old Degsy also sells clothes and cosmetics.

In this group: María, Rosalia, Degsy
