Dios Me Fortalece Group's story

The Dios me Fortalece communal bank is made up of 13 members; 10 ladies and three gentlemen, responsible mothers and fathers with 20 children. They are originally from Sauce, a place located in the western part of the country. They are known for being hardworking and responsible in their lives. They work daily to provide a better future for their children so that they will not need to go to work at an early age as they did.

Amada Jessenia is the coordinator of the Dios me Fortalece communal bank. Thanks to her entrepreneurial spirit and desire to get ahead, she has a convenience store located in her home. A convenience store is a small store where she sells various products, such as coffee, shampoo, rice, beans, sugar, salt, juices, milk, eggs, and tomatoes in small amounts. The objective of the loan is to invest in and grow her business so she can have a better income. The communal bank is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders provide for those people of scarce resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua, allowing them to have dignified work.
