Maria Nubia
María is 51 years old and originally from San Rafael del Sur. Now, though, she lives in Managua. She is married and has a business where she makes and sells piñatas. She has had the business for over 31 years. She began a business selling tortillas with her mother but, as time went by, they realised that this did not generate much profit and so María started her business selling piñatas. From this she does make a profit. María has the support of her husband and of her mother, who helps her to manage the business. María also has income coming in from what she makes with her motorbike taxi.

María expects to expand her business to makes a better income. She is applying for a loan to buy newspapers, glue, paste, clay pots, wire and more. María thinks that this loan will be a great help to her as it will allow her to buy all the materials she needs to make her piñatas. With this she will be able able to fill all the orders her customers give her. One of María's goals is to be able to give work to others who need it and to create a handicrafts workshop.
