Mujeres Responsables Group's story

The Responsible Women communal bank is made up of 8 members of whom 7 are women, one is a man. These entrepreneurs are very humble, hardworking and responsible people with good manners and lots of enthusiasm to improve their lives. All of them have businesses making handicrafts made from clay since it is what most people work with in the area where they live, which is located on the western part of Nicaragua. The communal bank meets to talk before they hand out the loans. In the picture you can see a board listing the services the bank offers like, motivating members to save, how to invest the loan, and how the loans are divided for repayment. Their daily routine is to wake up each morning at 6 a.m. to begin working at 7 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. as they make and offer their products in the local market to steady and potential customers. They also work selling their items on credit and get paid every two weeks. The products that they offer are: clay vases, clay houses, kitchen decorations, salt and pepper clay shakers and other items.
