G / S Comerciantes De Mariscos Group's story

The Comerciantes de Mariscos solidarity group is made up of three people, Noemí, Diana, and Angelita, single mothers with five children in their care. They're from Managua, located in the center of the country. They're responsible and hardworking people with a desire for personal self-improvement. Unfortunately they weren't able to study because they lacked the economic resources. And they strive every day to give their children the best.

Diana's the coordinator of the group so she's responsible for making timely payments for the group. Thanks to her effort and her desire to get ahead she has a business selling shellfish located in some of the town markets. She devotes about 10 hours a day to her business.

The goal of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business so she can earn better income in the near future.

The Comerciantes de Mariscos solidarity group is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to low-income people and poor countries such as Nicaragua so they have a source of decent work.

In this group: Noemi, Diana Raquel, Angelita Dora
