Fe Y Esperanza Group's story

The Fe y Esperanza communal bank is made up of 12 members, all of whom are single mothers with a total of 20 children to care for. They are all originally from Malpaisillo, located in the northern zone of the country. These ladies are responsible, hardworking women with a desire to get ahead personally. They got together to offer mutual support and get ahead with their different activities, because this is how they support their children. Cándida Rosa is the bank’s coordinator and in charge of making timely payments for the group. She has a grocery store in her home and sells daily consumables in small quantities, such as shampoo, coffee sorbet, sugar, beans, bread, milk, eggs, and juices. The “Fe y Esperanza” communal bank appreciates the Kiva lenders because they provide help for people of limited resources so they can get ahead in poor countries such as Nicaragua, allowing them to make a dignified living.
