Mujeres Responsables Group's story

The Mujeres Responsable communal bank is made up of nine members. Eight of them are women, and one is a man. They are all adults, married, and are responsible for their children. These members are from the Sauce department. This place is located in the northern part of the country. El Sauce is known for being a milk producing area.

Célica is the coordinator of the communal bank. She has the responsibility of being in charge of the members’ payment. Célica sells crafts like clay decorations, pots, griddles, gourds, kitchen and living rooms decorations, fruit dishes, and piggy banks.

The objective of the loan is to invest working capital and to stock her business of buying and selling crafts. Célica's routine is to work eight hours a day. She works in an itinerant manner, offering her product in the different communities.

The Mujeres Responsables communal bank is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders give to people with scarce resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so that they have a decent way of working.
