G.s Santa Fe Group's story

The Santa Fe solidarity group comprises four members: Ana, Angélica, Adelaida, and Alma. They are all adults, married, and have nine children to care for. They are originally from Villanueva, in the department of Chinandega, located in the western part of the country.

Angélica is the coordinator for this solidarity group and she is in charge of the group's responsibilities and of how and when installment payments are made. Her business is a grocery store where she sells essential goods in small amounts, like rice, beans, sugar, milk, matches, coffee, bread, and eggs. The purpose of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock her grocery store so that she can cover her customers' demand.

The Santa Fe solidarity group appreciates the help that Kiva lenders offer people with scarce resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can find ways to work.

In this group: Ana Cecilia, Maria Angelica, Maria Adelaida, Alma Suyen
