Nuestros Lirios De Los Valles Group's story

The communal bank Nuestros Lirios de los Valles is made up of 12 members, single mothers responsible for 27 children under their care.

They are originally from Sauce, a place that is located in the north of the country. It is known for its hardworking, responsible women, with hopes of succeeding. Unfortunately they could not study because of lack of financial resources and they were forced to work from an early age.

Thanks to her effort and her desire to get ahead Carina is the coordinator of the communal bank and she has as her economic activity a pulpería. A pulpería is a small store that sells groceries in small amounts such as coffee, rice, sugar, milk, bread, beans, detergent, soap, juice, and soda. She devotes about 12 hours daily to her business selling her products. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and supply her business for buying and selling groceries so that in the near future she can increase her profits.

The communal bank Nuestros Lirios de los Valles is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders offer to people with limited means, in poor countries such as Nicaragua, to have decent sources of work.
