G.s. El Paraiso Group's story

The El Paraíso solidarity group is made up of three members. They live in the department of Chinandega in the western part of the country, a very commercial area with a lot of demand.

Rosalina owns a grocery store where she sells products such as basic grains, rice, sugar, corn, beans, oil, and perishables like tomatoes, onions, chiltoma peppers, and bananas. She also sells sweets, refrigerated products, cosmetics, clothing and other things. Rosalina first started her business selling general merchandise. Then she earned more income and was able to start her grocery store. She has had it for 11 years, and with a lot of sacrifice and effort she has managed to get ahead.

Dina makes a living selling general clothing such as pants, blouses, shorts, and t-shirts. She also sells nail polish, make-up, perfume, creams, and other cosmetics.

Evert makes a living selling peanuts, calabash seeds, cacao, and other grains. He also offers soldering services, roof installation and other things.

The goal of this loan is to invest in their various businesses. They're very grateful for the help and support that Kiva investors give to low-income people and poor countries like Nicaragua so they can earn a decent living.

In this group: Rosalina Eufemia , Ever Arnoldo, Dina Maria
