Mujeres Responsables Group's story

The Mujeres Responsables communal bank is made up of 12 members who are mothers with a total of 20 children under their care. They are natives of Leon, which is situated in the western region of the country. They are known for being hardworking and responsible with a desire to succeed. In their free time, they enjoy spending time with their families. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, they were not able to pursue an education because they needed to work to help with household expenses. They are now fighting to give their children a better future.

Thanks to her effort and desire to get ahead, Rosa is their coordinator. She has a business selling baked goods door-to-door, and by custom order. She sells various pastries such as: picos, cachos, semitas, polvorones, maquetas cortadas, empanadas, and pan de especies. She works about 10 hours a day selling her products.

The goal of this loan is to invest in working capital and to supply her bakery so that in the near future she can increase her earnings.

Mujeres responsables is grateful for the help the Kiva lenders provide to people with limited resources and in poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they may have a dignified line of work.
