A loan of $1,525 helped a member to stock her store.

Nazareth Group's story

The Nazareth communal association is made up of eight members, two gentlemen and six ladies, responsible mothers and fathers with 20 children to care for. They are from Malpaisillo, a place located in the western part of the country, and they are known for being hardworking and responsible, with a desire for personal success. Unfortunately, they were not able to study for careers because of limited financial resources and they had to go to work at a young age. They work to provide a future and better opportunities for their children.

Ruth is the group’s coordinator and thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, she has a small store where she sells food such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, juices, eggs, detergents, and matches in small quantities. She works about 12 hours daily and her business is set up in her home. Her goal for the money from this loan is to buy food products to stock her store so that she can have a better income in the near future. Nazareth is grateful to the Kiva lenders who help people from poor countries like Nicaragua to have better means of dignified work.

In this group: Reyna Yubil, Lilliam Josafeth, Byron Lester, Audelis Arelis, Ruth Del Socorro, Ana Gabriela, Rosa Idalia , Jolman Yonny*
