G.s. Milagro De Jesus Group's story

The solidarity group Milagro de Jesús is made up of three members: Maura Elena, Perfecta Rosa, and María Mercedes. Two of them are single mothers and one is married. Between them, they have seven children. They live in the municipality of Sauce, a place characterized by its production of milk, milk curds, and cream, and for the raising of pigs and chickens. All of the women are responsible and hard-working. Maura Elena is the group's coordinator. She works selling soft drinks, and also raising and selling pigs. She has been in this business for nine years. Her work routine is to wake up at 5 am and prepare her natural soft drinks in order to go out and sell them in the street. Maura Elena is applying for a loan to buy fruits such as pineapple, watermelon, melon, dragon fruit, passion fruit, and oranges, to make her drinks. The solidarity group Milagro de Jesús is grateful for the help that Kiva investors give to people with few resources and from poor countries like Nicaragua, so that they can have decent work.

In this group: Perfecta Rosa, Maura Elena, Maria Mercedes
