Somos Pro Mujer Group's story

"Somos Pro Mujer" is a communal bank with eight members, from Matagalpa, Nicaragua. With the loans they have obtained, they have expanded their businesses selling clothing, cosmetics on-line, and "nacatamales" [Nicaraguan-style tamales].

Rosa Argentina (fifth from the left), age 57, is married and has three adult children. Within the group, she has stood out as the president, with her responsibility and solidarity. Her business is making and selling "nacatamales", using a gift of seasoning inherited from her mother, that satisfies every customer that tries her product. She will invest the loan in the purchase of supplies such as corn, butter, lime, meat, banana leaves, pastries, and utensils such as large pans and sauce pans that will facilitate making her products.

Her greatest success has been perseverance, and she is counting on you to continue progressing and diversifying her business.
