Grupo Triunfador Group's story

The 'Triunfador' community bank has 12 members. They are all single mothers and, between them, they have 27 children in their care. They are all from El Sauce, in the north of the country. They are noted for being hard-working, responsible and having a desire to improve themselves. Unfortunately, owing to a lack of financial resources, they couldn't complete their schooling. They had to work from a young age in order to help with their household expenses. For this reason, they are working hard every day so that they can provide a better future for their own children.

Thanks to her strong spirit and her desire to make progress, Maryuri is the coordinator of the Triunfador bank. Her business is a 'pulperia' which is located in her home. A 'pulperia' is a small store that sells products in small quantities such as coffee sachets, boxes of matches, rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, detergent, soap and juice. Maryuri will use this loan to increase her working capital and stock her store with food products so that, in the not-so-distant-future, she will be able to make more income. The Triunfador community bank are grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to people with limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can earn a decent living.
