El Lucero De Diriá Group's story
Three women and one man took the initiative to come together to form a group that they named “El Lucero de Diriá.” These people, who live in the same community, share similar needs and values since they have businesses and the desire to work, but need to invest more capital in their businesses. That is why they focused on their goals and decided to take action by working together. Rosa, a 29-year-old woman who helps her husband maintain their home through her business of selling fried foods and nacatamales, leads the group. She has gone out to sell on the street in her community for 12 years. She requests this funding to invest in corn, pork, rice, sweet pepper, onion, garlic, banana leaves, etc. The other members are María, 32 years old, who sells tamales, a product made of corn, and who has also sold enchiladas in her community for three years; Kenia, a young 23-year-old woman, who at a young age set out on her path toward business and sells tamales in her community; and José, a 28-year-old man who has traveled from his community to the department of Rivas to sell vegetables on the street for five years. These people with similar lives want to continue fighting until they reach their goals, which are to offer the best to their families.
