Mi Dios Es Mi Fortaleza Group's story

The Communal Bank “Mi Dios es Mi Fortaleza” (My God Is My Strength) consists of 10 members. They are responsible parents who who must care for 20 children among them. The members are originally from Malpaisillo, a place that is located in the northern part of the region. They are known for being hardworking, responsible, and having the drive to succeed on a personal level. Unfortunately, due to the lack of financial resources, they were not able to study for a degree and were obligated to work at an early age so that they could help with the household expenses. At the moment, they strive each day to provide a better future for their children.

Thanks to her effort and her desire to move forward, Matilde was appointed the group coordinator. She has a business of selling bread as a street vendor and by accepting orders. Matilde devotes about eight hours each day to her business by offering her product. In the near future, she would like to generate more income.

The Communal Bank “Mi Dios es Mi Fortaleza” is grateful for the assistance that Kiva lenders provide to people who have limited resources and come from poor countries, such as Nicaragua, so that they can earn a decent living.
