San Ramon Solidarity Group's story

The San Ramón group consists of two members, Delmi Raquel and Martha Lorena. Both are single. They are from the department of Chinandega, which is located in the western part of the country, which is a very commercial area with a lot of activity. Delmi has two children, ages 3 and 7, both of whom are in school. She began her business with the help of her mother, who has always supported her, and as the opportunity arose to sell to sugar mill workers, she decided to set out on her own, and, thanks to God, it has gone well for her so far. Martha has five children, ages 24, 29, 30, 31, and 34, all of whom are working. She began her business looking for a means of subsistence because her children were in school. She was both mother and father at the same time for them. First she began with the sale of soft drinks and enchiladas on buses, but later she began to prepare meals, and in this way she began to acquire customers. Now her business is her main source of employment. Each has had her business for more than 10 years. They are applying for the loan to buy rice, beans, oil, disposable plates, soft drinks, sugar, coffee, and other items. The San Ramón group is grateful for the help that the Kiva investors offer to people of scarce resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua to have a means of dignified work.
