Banco Comunal Amor De Mujeres Group's story

The Amor de Mujeres communal bank is made up of 15 members, responsible single mothers with a total of 35 children under their care. They are from El Sauce, a place located in the northern part of the country. El Sauce is a place characterized by milk production and cheese curds. They are hardworking, responsible people who are eager to get ahead. These women fight day to day to get their little children ahead and offer them a better future, since they themselves couldn't go to school due to a lack of resources and had to start working at a young age.

Jeylin Josefa is the coordinator of the communal bank and her economic activity is selling various items of new clothing such as pants, shirts, dresses, socks, camisoles, t-shirts, underwear, sheets and towels. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business buying and selling new clothing so that in future she can make more income. She works at her business for about 10 hours a day, offering her merchandise as a street vendor with a 20 kg pack. The Amor de Mujeres communal bank is grateful for the help from the Kiva investors offer people of low income in poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can have dignified work.
