Dirita Group's story

The Dirita Group consists of Luisa Antonia H. R., Teresa de Jesús Velásquez and Mayra del Carmen Velásquez. These three women come from the Dirita area and have few resources; they are very brave and hard working, entrepreneurial, with great desire to succeed.

Adim has granted Dorita great opportunities for their respective businesses and families. Today they need to continue working but in order to do so they need capital to invest in buying products for their respective businesses such as fruit and vegetables (lemons, oranges, squash, chayote, watermelon, papaya, etc.) and basic grains.

The coordinator of the group is 22 year old Luisa Antonia H. R. who 4 years ago began selling fruit and vegetables to help with her household expenses and her children ages 7, 6, and 5. Her fellow group member Teresa de Jesús Velásquez also sells fruits and vegetables in the Masaya market.

Meanwhile Mayra del Carmen Velázquez has a small convenience store where she sells products commonly used every day such as rice, beans, oil, eggs, meat, corn, soap, detergent, etc. She hopes to be able to be successful and continue working.

In this group: Teresa De Jesús, Mayra Del Carmen, Luisa Antonia
