SosteNica, a non-profit financial institute, integrates environmental and educational projects with financial services, creating a holistic and long-term approach to the alleviation of poverty in Nicaragua. It’s a trail blazer in its vision and actions to live gently on this planet, truly a model of green development.
In addition to an Untours Foundation loan that allows SosteNica to expand its work, the foundation offers a Charitable Remainder Trust through SosteNica.
SosteNica has programs involving sustainable housing and agriculture as well as economic development that will have long term impact for impoverished families. Microcredit is an important piece of their work, as is development of worker-owned cooperatives.
