Nuestra Señora De Guadalupe Group's story

Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe is made up of 8 members. They are single mother with 20 children under their responsibility. They are from Sauce, in the western part of the country. They are described as hardworking, responsible, and eager to get ahead. They fight every day to offer their young children the best quality of life.

The bank coordinator for Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe is Rosa Argentina. She is responsible for the members' payments which they do correctly and on time. Rosa's activity is "pulperia", which is a small store that sells things such as shampoo, coffee, salt, beans, bread, milk, juices, natural juices, and bagged ice. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business so that in the near future she can make better income. The Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe communal bank is grateful for the Kiva investors' help that they offer to low income people in places like Nicaragua so that they can have a dignified life.
