Jehova Es Mi Pastor Group's story

Jehová es mi Pastor is made up of 13 members, 11 women and two men. They are mothers and together are raising 25 people. They are from Malpaisillo, a place located in the northern part of the country. These people are characterized as responsible, hardworking, eager to get ahead personally. They fight day to day to bring home the daily bread to each of their children, and offer them a better future. Due to a lack of resources, they were unable to go to school and had to work at an early age.

Audelis is the coordinator of the communal bank and her economic activity is a small pulperia in her house. A pulperia is a small store that sells edible products in small quantities such as coffee, shampoo, rice, beans, sugar, bread, milk, detergent, soap, juices, soft drinks, natural juices, and matches. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business by buying and selling edible products so that in the not so distant future, she can obtain better income. The Jehová es mi Pastor communal bank is grateful for the help that the Kiva investors are giving to people of low income and poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they may have dignified work.
