Hi! My name is Katia Bracamontes. I’m a single mom of two kids. I was born in San Juan de Oriente, Masaya, Nicaragua.


What is your role with SI Nicaragua, and how long have you been doing it?
I have been called to be a part of S.I. Nicaragua for almost 3 years. I work at the microfinance site. The group of ladies I work with is called MI BANQUITO (little bank). I work with 55 ladies in three different communities. I share God’s word with them and train them to start their own businesses. I encourage them to save money, and I teach them handcrafts, small projects, simple cooking classes and sewing projects.

What is one thing you look forward to in your future ministry with SI?
My favorite part of my work has been seeing families transformed by Jesus, marriages restored, and ladies surrendering their lives to Jesus. I would like to see the 55 ladies saved by Jesus and successful with their own businesses.

Do you have a favorite verse?
My favorite verse from the Bible is Isaiah 61:1, “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, Because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He sent Me to heal the poor; He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and set the prisoners free.”
