A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy a variety of bread.


Divino Niño Sauce Group's story

The Divino Niño El Sauce communal bank is made up of eight members, seven women and one man who are single parents with 20 children. They're from El Sauce, located in the northern part of the country. These members are hardworking and responsible people with a desire for personal improvement. Unfortunately none of them were able to study because they had to work from an early age.

The coordinator of the communal bank is Rosa Melida, who's responsible for making the bank members' payments punctually. Her job is selling bread in the street and at home. She works some eight hours a day selling her bread from a 20-kilogram basket on her head. She does her job with great pleasure because it's how she supports herself and her children.

The goal of the loan is to invest in buying a variety of bread to sell to her customers, including rolls, sugar cookies, spice bread, and pineapple tarts. This way she can have a better income in the near future.

The Divino Niño Sauce communal bank is grateful for the help Kiva investors give to low-income people and poor countries such as Nicaragua so they have the means to a decent job.
