De Confianza Los Cerritos Group's story

The Communal Bank “De Confianza Los Cerritos” consists of 11 members, 10 women and 1 man. They are responsible parents who are responsible for 20 children among them. The members are originally from El Sauce, 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, they lacked the financial resources required to pursue a degree, so they were obligated to work at a young age in order to 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, Ana was appointed the group coordinator. Her business is a small store where she sells products in small quantities including rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, salt, matches, juices, sodas, cheese, and vegetables. Ana devotes about 12 hours to her business by offering her products. The purpose of her loan is to invest it as operating capital so that she can restock her business of buying and selling products. In the near future, she would like to generate more income.

The group “De Confianza Los Cerritos” appreciates the assistance that the 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.

In this group: Dominga Yabett, Alda Maria, Ana Patricia, Maria Elisett, Ileana Jose, Edipcia Del Socorro, Paublo Seferino, Herminia, Tania Veronica, Bertha Rosa, Elena Aurora
