Venceremos Group's story

The Community Bank, "Venceremos," (Overcome), is made up of eight members - seven women and one man. All the members are responsible parents, with a collective 15 children in their care. All the group members are from the town of León, which is located in the western region of Nicaragua. In their free time, the group members like to spend quality time with their families. Even though none of the group members were able to complete higher education degrees, they work as hard as they can every day to provide for their families and give their children a bright future.

Benita is the group coordinator, and she makes a living operating a small general store out of her home. She sells small quantities of a wide variety of products, including: rice, sugar, beans, corn, matches, shampoo, detergents, soap, juices, bread, milk, eggs, etc. She hopes to invest the support from this loan in restocking her business in order to offer a greater variety of products to her customers and increase her profits. Benita works 12 hours every day at her store, and she is very dedicated to the business.

The Community Bank Venceremos is grateful to Kiva lenders for their generous support of persons with scarce resources all around the world who want to make an honest living.
