Cristo Nos Ama Group's story

Cristo nos Ama (Christ loves us) is a communal bank made up of 10 members from the ages of 25 to 60, married with 15 children under their care. These members are natives of Leon, a place that is known for being a tourist area, with honest and friendly people, wanting to excel. Everyone has different economic activities; however they support one another because it’s been a way of life for them and their families.

Dominga is the coordinator of the communal bank Cristo nos Ama and has a general store located in her house. A general store is a store that sells everyday consumer products in small amounts such as small coffee packets, matches, shampoo packets, rice, cream, detergent, soap, bread, milk and firewood. Funding is needed to invest in working capital to supply the general store in order to improve profits and customers.

The communal bank Cristo nos Ama is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders provide to low-economic individuals and poor countries like Nicaragua to have a decent life.
