A loan of $1,050 helped a member to buy pigs.

Grupo La Fe Group's story

The “Grupo la Fe” communal bank is made up of eight members; all women from the Malpaisillo neighborhood, located in the western zone of the country. All of the members are responsible, hardworking women.

Juana Regina is the group’s coordinator and raises and sells pigs from her home. Her routine is to go out to the adjacent communities to look for pigs to raise and sell.

The business was born from a need to have a means of working to help with the household expenses. She is asking for this loan so that she can buy and sell a group of pigs that she can get at a good price. In this way she can take advantage of the Christmas season, when her sales increase.

The “Groupo la Fe” communal bank appreciates the assistance that the Kiva investors are providing to persons of limited means, in poor countries like Nicaragua, so that they can have a means of dignified work.

In this group: Juana Regina, Lorenza De Los Angeles, Juana Johana, Emilia Del Carmen, Santos Patricia, Juana Adilia, Gilberta, Gilma Del Rosario
