Jesse and Jari Rodriguez

Jesse started financial coaching in 2005 and began applying Biblical concepts to his finances. Together with his wife Jari they paid off debt and established a good savings plan. With good financial planning, hard work and God’s blessing of wisdom they earned their university degrees debt free.

Soon after, Satisfied Wages was started. This name is inspired from one of their favorite verses in the Holy Bible, Isaiah 55: 1-3. Satisfied Wages was incorporated in 2014 and worked with urban ministries and small businesses in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The couple relocated to Nicaragua in October, 2016, and partnered with a local ministry, Nehemiah Center, to minister to Christian businesses.

Satisfied Wages for Nicaragua

Our Mission: Building relationships with Nicaraguans and forming Christian entrepreneurs with a worldview of business according to the values of the Kingdom of God, in order to create, manage and multiply economic wealth.

Our Business, Our Ministry

The Good Sense Movement is an integral part of our ministry. Through workshops, support groups and individual mentoring we are seeing an impact! Program participants have payed off debts, increased savings and found financial stability and peace.

With a Biblical understanding of stewardship these Christian leaders can take their businesses, churches, and ministries from survival to prosperity. Our goal is for them to develop holistic Christian financial models that will strengthen their families and communities by providing jobs, hiring others, and increasing church and ministry evangelism to be the light and salt of Nicaragua, thereby breaking the cycle of poverty!
