microcredit

  • When JustHope Founder Leslie Penrose and her husband Steve stepped off the plane in Managua, Nicaragua, a few weeks ago, they didn’t know what to expect. Granted, they had been there hundreds of times before over the course of many years, but this time was different. It was the first time they had visited Nicaragua since unrest began back in April.

  • We partnered with a filmmaker in Nicaragua to highlight what JustHope is doing and who we are impacting. We are making a difference in the lives of people like Yamilet, a farmer and microcredit participant, who remarked: "Three years ago I never hoped to succeed like I do now. Today I feel secure because I have a way to earn."

    We will be screening the video at Wine for Water on Oct 1. Check it out on YouTube.
