A loan of $2,350 helped a member to invest in working capital and stock her convenience store with products such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, juice, salt and detergents.

Dios Proveera Group's story

The 'Dios Proveerá' (God Will Provide) community bank has ten members who are all single mothers. Between them, they have 20 dependent children. They are all from Malpaisillo, in the north of the country. These women are responsible, hard-working people who have a desire to improve themselves. Sadly, they were unable to study as they lacked the necessary financial support and needed to work from a very early age in order to help out with their household expenses.

The coordinator of this community bank is Fresia, whose business is running a 'pulperia' which is located in her home. A 'pulperia' is a small store which sells food products in small quantities such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, eggs, juice, salt, and detergents. The purpose of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business so that, in the not-too-distant future, she can make better income.

The Dios Proveera community bank is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to people in poor countries such as Nicaragua, enabling them to earn a decent living.
