Leon, Nicaragua / Food Production/Sales

Divino Niño Sauce Group's story

The communal bank Divino Nino el Sauce is made up of ten members, eight women and one man, responsible mothers and fathers with 12 children under their care. They are originally from Sauce, a place that is located in the western area of the country. They are characterized by being responsible and hard-working, with the desire for self-improvement. In their free time they like to enjoy the company of their children and spend quality time with them. Unfortunately, they were not able to study and they saw themselves as obligated to work from a young age.

Thanks to her effort and her desire to succeed, Karen is the coordinator of the communal bank and works in a fritanga that is located in her home. A fritanga is a restaurant that sells home-cooked food like roasted meat, roast chicken, tacos, gallo pinto, tajadas, ripe plantains, fried cheese, and manuelitas. She dedicates around 10 hours a day to her business, preparing and selling the food.

The objective of the loan is to invest in work capital and supply her business purchasing and selling food products for the fritanga, for which in the not-too-far future she will be able to receive a better income. The communal bank Divino Nino el Sauce is thankful for the help the Kiva lenders provide to people of few resources and poor countries like Nicaragua, so they are able to have a dignified job.
