Banco Comunal Corazon De Jesus Group's story

The Corazon communal association is made up of 10 members, eight ladies and two gentlemen; responsible mothers and fathers with 20 children between them. They live in the northern area of the country, known for producing dairy, products. They are responsible, hardworking people with a desire for personal success. Unfortunately, they were not able to study for careers due to a lack of resources and the need to go to work to help with the household expenses.

Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, Melida, the group’s coordinator, has a small store where she sells food items and small quantities of rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, detergent, juices, matches, and soft drinks.

She works 12 hours a day offering her products. She will use the money from this loan to invest into her food business so she can have better income in the near future. The Corazon association is grateful to the Kiva lenders who provide people from countries of low resources like Nicaragua, the opportunity to have a dignified source of work.

In this group: Maria Elsa , Alejandro De Jesus, Dominga Del Socorro, Rosa Matilde , Juana Victoria, Darliz, Juan De Jesus, Alba Yaquelin, Eveling Ruth, Melida Del Socorro
