Dios Con Nosotros. Group's story

The "Dios con Nosotros" communal bank is comprised of nine members, three men and six women, who are responsible fathers and mothers with 15 children. They are from Malpaisillo, located in the northern part of the country. The group's members are characterized as being hard-working, responsible, and working toward personal success. They work every day to bring economic and emotional stability to their families.

Because of her efforts and desires to move forward, Rosa is the coordinator of the communal bank. She makes a living by selling bread such as bites, tarts, snacks, pineapple cakes, plain bread, and pies. She works 10 hours a day, offering her products by traveling and also from her home. The purpose of this loan is to invest in working capital and stock up her business by buying and selling bread. With this investment, she hopes that she will be able to earn better income in the near future. The "Dios con Nosotros" communal bank is thankful for the help that Kiva lenders provide to people with few resources from poor countries such as Nicaragua. This helps them to have a better future.
