La Rubia Group's story

The group “La Rubia” consists of three strong, hardworking, and enterprising women. The group coordinator is Sra. Damaris L. M., who sells handicrafts in the northern part of the country. She spends most of the time traveling for her business. Damaris says that one week she will be in the north selling with another young woman, and on another week, she will be bringing her merchandise to Masaya. Her fellow group members are Martha Azucena García, who has been selling shoes for ten years, and Martha M., who sells tortillas and makes Nicaraguan tamales, blood sausage, and fried foods on the weekends.
