Luz De Campo Group's story

The “Luz de Campo” (Light of the Countryside) communal bank consists of 12 members, 11 women and one man. They are single mothers and father with 20 children in their care. They are from León, a place located in the western part of the country. They are noted for being hardworking, responsible people who want to improve personally. In their free time they enjoy spending time with their families in recreational activities that are within their possibilities. Sadly, they were unable to study careers and were obliged to start working at a very young age to help with household expenses.

Thanks to her effort and drive to get ahead, Nubia is the communal bank coordinator and her economic activity is selling crafts that are typical of the region like clay vases, jugs, clay houses, masks, dolls, kitchen decorations, suns, stars, clay baskets and giant clay figures. She carries out this activity from place to place and at home. Her objective is to invest in working capital and stock up her crafts buying and selling business so that in the not too distant future her income will improve.

The Luz de Campo communal bank is grateful for the help Kiva lenders provide people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so that they can have an honorable way to earn a living.
