El Buen Pastor Group's story

The Communal Bank “El Buen Pastor” (The Good Shepherd) consists of eight members, seven women and one man. They are originally from El Sauce, a place that is located in the northern part of the country. These individuals are known as hardworking and responsible people who have the drive to succeed on a personal level. In their free time, they enjoy spending time with their children. Unfortunately, due to the a lack of financial resources, they were not able to attend school and were obligated to work at a young age.

Daneysis is the coordinator of the Communal Bank. Her business is a store that is located in her home. She sells food and other products in small quantities such as rice, beans, coffee, sugar, detergent, milk, eggs, juices, and bread. Daneysis works at her business approximately 12 hours each day by offering her products. Her loan will be invested as operating capital for her business of buying and selling food products. In the not-so-distant future, she hopes to generate more income.

The Communal Bank “El Buen Pastor” is grateful for the assistance that the Kiva lenders have provided to low-income people from poor countries, such as Nicaragua, so that they can have a decent form of work.

In this group: Maria Isabel, Juan Carlos, Martha, Catalina, Daneysis Yessenia, Ana Patricia, Gloria Del Socorro, Elida Maria
