The payment, which is called the Christian Socialist and Solidarity Graduation Bond, will begin to be distributed in the first week of December, on the initiative of President Daniel Ortega, who said it would be a way of recognizing students’ and families’ efforts.

Rosario Murillo, coordinator of the Nicaraguan Council of Citizenship and Communication, said students would receive the bonds after passing their final exams and before graduation activities.
