Mujeres De Valor Group's story
The "Mujeres de Valor" (Women of values) group lives in the community of Santa Carmela in Jinotega and is made up of 6 women and 3 men who were allowed to join the group to help their businesses grow. Maria Elda (in the middle of the photo with a violet skirt) is 40 years old and is married to Juan who is a security guard and a farmer in his free time. For a long time now, Maria Elda works unrelentingly on her sewing machine to design and manufacture clothes. Her main ambition is to sew. She needs a loan to buy several feet of fabric, wood as well as as ingredients to make nacatamales (tamales from Nicaragua) that she will prepare and sell on the weekends. She is a woman of many talents and doesn't miss on any opportunity to do business. Powerful women like Elda need economic support to achieve their personal growth. Support her!
