I've been involved with SosteNica for many years and am impressed with the vision and dedication of its founder Alan Wright. Programs are well thought out and adjusted based on reviews and changes in circumstances always with an eye toward reducing climate change and building resiliance for Nicaraguans. The staff in Nicaragua is outstanding.

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.
