G.s. Rosa De Sharon Group's story

The G.S Rosa de Sharon Group is made up of three single mothers with a combined eight children.

They are from Nagarote, located in the west of the country. Nagarote is known for its typical food and refreshments such as "quesillos" [cheese, sour cream and onion wrapped in a tortilla] and "tiste" [cocoa and rice drink].

They are characterized as being hard working, responsible and with a desire to improve. Unfortunately due to a lack of economic resources, they could not study at the university.

Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, the coordinator of the G. S. Group is Mayra. She sells home cooked food.

Her business is located in her home. She cooks foods like rice stuffing, chicken in broth, fried chicken, "manuelitas [cheese fritters], pork, ground beef, steak, beans and fried plantains.

The goal of the loan is to invest it in working capital and aide her business in buying and selling food products so that in the near future she can have more income.

The G.S Rosa de Sharon Group is thankful for the help that the Kiva lenders give to people with few resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua to help them have dignifying jobs.

In this group: Mayra Del Socorro, Sonia Verania, Silvia Juniet
