G/s Gracia De Dios Group's story

There are five people, four women and one man, in the Gracia de Dios group. Between them they are responsible for eight children who attend primary school. They are natives of San Marco Carazo which is located in the western part of the country. All are known for being hardworking, responsible people with a great desire to get ahead in life. They like to spend their free time with their children. Sadly, because of a lack of money, they weren’t able to take any professional training courses. Now they work hard every day to provide their children with a better future.

Sandra, a hardworking and committed person, is the coordinator of the group. To earn her living she grows and sells vegetables and fruit in the local market. She spends ten hours daily walking around selling produce such as bananas, lemons, guavas, melons, and watermelons. She is seeking a loan to buy more fruit and vegetables for her business so that in the not-too-distant future she can increase her income.

The Gracia de Dios group is grateful for the help provided by Kiva donors to poor people from poor countries like Nicaragua so they can improve their work situations.

In this group: Sandra Janeth, Nola Mercedes, Ivan Antonio, Meylin Magdalena, Sandra Del Socorro
