A loan of $2,075 helped a member to buy pigs.


Nuestros Lirios De Los Valles Group's story

The “Nuestros Lirios de los Valles” communal bank is made up of 11 members; hardworking responsible women with good traditions, and with a desire to succeed personally. These women are all from Sauce, in the north part of the country, and have 15 children to care for. The ladies are known for being dedicated and responsible with their payments, given what they have shown in the past.

Norma is the group’s coordinator and is in charge of running the group. She also raises and sells pigs on the hoof, and also products such as meat, nacatamales, pork rinds, charrasca, frito, chingaste, and moronga. She generally makes this food from her home on the weekends. She will use the money from this loan to buy a group of pigs that she is being offered for a good price. The communal bank is grateful to the Kiva lenders who help people of limited means, in poor countries like Nicaragua, have dignified sources of work.

In this group: Isaura Del Carmen, Adilsa Ramona, Virginia Gertrudis, Delma Auxiliadora, Telma Vilma, Maria Auxiliadora , Carina Libette, Mercedes , Vicenta Estela, Angela Del Socorro, Norma
