Managing Socially Responsible Investments to promote ecological community development in Nicaragua

SosteNica’s collaborative work integrates environmental and educational projects with financial services, creating a holistic and long-term approach to the alleviation of poverty in Nicaragua.  Our technical assistance, rural education and loan programs strengthen Nicaraguan communities, ensuring that Nicaragua’s culture and way of life have a sustainable future.  SosteNica offers socially conscious investors in the US an opportunity to use their financial resources constructively, while having a positive impact on Nicaraguan communities.  SosteNica affords the productive poor of Nicaragua — small farmers and micro-enterprises — access to otherwise scarce credit.  Tax deductible donations to SosteNica are used to provide: appropriate technical assistance to our clients; natural sustainable housing and eco-technologies; and green credit for small business ventures building a new more sustainable economy in Nicaragua.
