Review for Nicaphoto, Inc., Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a former expat working in Nicaragua in community development, I've known Ronnie since 2009 and seen Nicaphoto develop into a thriving community full of success stories. I love dropping by the office there because there is always something exciting happening and good news to share - another young person with a scholarship, more kids in tutoring, a harvest from their beautifully managed garden to share around. Nicaphoto practices the kind of tough love that really makes change - holding young people to a high standard of responsibility, setting a high bar for their achievements, and then giving them the support and individual attention that shows them someone believes in them.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field
 

Review for Sostenica Inc, West Chester, PA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

SosteNica is provides opportunities for North Americans to make a real impact in the lives of Nicaraguan farmers and small business owners through loans and technical support. I have been an investor since 2005 and also worked for three years as a staff member in Nicaragua, and can vouch for the integrity and quality of the loans services provided through their partner organizations. SosteNica is a small group of creative individuals who are skilled at taking limited resoures and maximizing their impact with creative combinations of credit and technical assistance. If you are interested in using your savings to make the world a better place socially, economically and environmentally, I urge you to make an investment with SosteNica.
