A loan of $1,025 helped a member purchase ingredients.


Santa Martha Group's story

Jazmina del Socorro G. M., María Antonia C., Lidia de los Ángeles G. L., and María del Rosario N. A. are the members of the Santa Martha Group. They are from the region of Nandayure, which is part of the city of Masaya. This region is located in a rural area 2 kilometers from central Masaya.

Jazmina is the group coordinator. She makes hojuelas (pancakes or crepes) made of flour and sells them throughout the region. When she was 9 years old, her aunt taught her how make this dish. As she got older, she saw this as an opportunity to help her husband (who works in a bakery) with the household expenses.

Jazmina intends to use her loan to purchase larger quantities of ingredients so that she can also sell her products in the Masaya area and increase her revenue.

The Santa Martha Group has already had 12 previous loans with ADIM over a 3 year period. They have learned to be supportive of one another and work hard to maintain their credit.

María del Rosario has a grocery store. Lidia works as a seamstress making children’s clothing, but she also sells tortillas to meet her household expenses. Doña María Antonia makes and sells hojuelas just like Jazmina.
