G/s Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The loan group Mujeres Emprendedoras (Enterprising Women) is comprised of 4 members, responsible women who care for 10 children. They are natives of the northern area of the region. They are hardworking, responsible, and have a great desire to overcome problems. Unfortunately, because of a lack of economic resources, they were not able to finish their education and were obliged to work from a very young age to help with the household expenses. Currently, they work hard day in and day out to offer a better future to their children. Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, the coordinator is Brenda and she works selling products such as pants, shorts, skirts, shirts, dresses, underwear, sleepwear, kids' clothes, and cosmetics. She works about 10 hours a day in her business, offering her products for sale, The goal of this loan is to have business capital to supply her store so that, in the not too distant future, she will have better income. The loan group Mujeres Emprendedoras is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders offer people of scarce resources and poor countries like Nicaragua to have dignified work.

In this group: Brenda Carolina, Cristian Isabel, Elisa Antonia, Berta Francisca
