A loan of $800 helped a member to buy avocado, mango and cassava to sell.

Rayito De Sol Group's story

This communal bank is comprised of three successful members and coordinated by Shujeylin, who is 26 years old, married and has two children aged 10 and 5. She sells fruits and vegetables at the markets of Masaya and Managua. She started this business three years ago in order to help with the home expenses and be able to buy things that her children need.

Shujeylin is requesting a loan to buy avocado, mango and cassava. These products are highly demanded by customers at the marketplaces.

The remaining members are Miguel, 31, who has been selling clothes to the Free-Trade Zone workers for two years; and Elizabeth, 27, who sells perishable goods at Masaya’s market. They say that they were able to increase their sales and invest on their businesses thanks to the previous loan.
