El Señor Es Mi Rey Group's story

The Communal Bank “El Señor Es Mi Rey” (The Lord Is My King) consists of 13 members, 11 women and 2 men. They are originally from El Sauce, a place that is located in the northern part of the country. These individuals are known for being hardworking, responsible, and having the drive to succeed on a personal level. In their free time, they enjoy spending time with their children as a family. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, they were not able to attend school and were obligated to work at a young age.

The coordinator for this Communal Bank is Vilma. She manages a general store that is located in her home where she sells food products in small quantities such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, cheese, eggs, juices, and sodas, as well as detergents. Vilma works at her business approximately 12 hours each day and enjoys it very much. Her loan will be invested as operating capital so that she can restock her business of buying and selling food products. In the not-so-distant future, she hopes to generate more income.

The Communal Bank 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.
