G.s Los Hermanos Group's story

The solidarity group Los Hermanos [The Siblings] is made up of two members, Seneyda and Flor Iselda. They are natives of a municipality located in the north of the department of Chinandega. Seneyda and Flor Iselda are sisters, so they decided to request a joint loan to help each other and invest in their respective businesses. As the coordinator of this group, Seneyda is the person responsible for making loan payments and complying with the terms of the loan.

Seneyda is married with two children, both of whom are in high school. She has a grocery business in her home where she sells products such as basic grains, candies and soft drinks. Seneyda started this business 13 years ago to help her family get ahead. One of her dreams is to be able to help her children get ahead and see them complete their studies and become professionals.

Flor Iselda is married with three school-aged children. She works selling cooked beans and tortillas. Flor Iselda is hardworking and honest. She started her small business 12 years ago in order to make a living. One of her greatest dreams is to see her children become independent professionals and to give them a better quality of life.

The solidarity group Los Hermanos thanks Kiva lenders for the help they give to small business owners to get ahead in developing countries like Nicaragua.
