A loan of $1,000 helped a member to buy a batch of live pigs.

La Prosperidad Group's story

The La Prosperidad (Prosperity) loan group is made up of eight members, seven women and one man, who have ten children in their care. They are natives of the Sauce area, which is located in the northern zone of the region. They are known as responsible hard workers, with the will for personal achievement. In their free time, they like to enjoy quality time with their children. Now they strive day after day to offer a better future to their little children.

Thanks to her effort and her will to advance, the coordinator, Marlit, works in raising and selling live pigs. Her business is located at her home, and she works in it about eight hours a day. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business of buying and selling pigs, so that in the not-too-distant future she can obtain better earnings. La Prosperidad is grateful for the help that the Kiva investors offer to people of limited resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they can have a means of dignified work.

In this group: Ana Joseling, Teresa Del Carmen, Celia Esmeralda, Candida Rosa, Maryuri Yuliett, Manuel Antonio, Marlit Yaneth, Maria De Jesus
