El Amanecer Group's story

The group "Amanecer" is comprised of three very hardworking women. The details of each of the activities that they perform are described below: Fidelia Amparo F. sells sweets, conducting the business from the booth of C.E.B. "Juan Lindo" in the village of Quebrada Larga, Jamastran. On the weekends she bakes the nacatamales (large steamed tamales) and bread. She is married. Her husband transports freight using a vehicle that he owns, and he travels each day between Quebrada Larga and Danlí. They have resided in this town for 26 1/2 years. They have 2 dependent children, and with the income that she generates from her business she supports her husband and covers certain household expenses; she also covers all of her own personal expenses including the financing that she acquires. Ana Berta H. has had a business selling herbicides (agricultural supplies) for two years. This type of business is not common in the town where she resides. She also sells refills and cards for cellular phones. She lives with a partner and is the mother of three children. Her partner works as a driver, transporting people between the Santa Maria area and Jamastran. Ana decided to undertake this type of business, seeing that there wasn't anyone who was selling these types of products in her area. With the income that she generates, she supports her partner with certain household expenses, and covers 100 percent of her personal expenses including the financing that she acquires. Elizabeth R. H. sells charamuscas (popsicles), conducting the business from the booth of C.E.B. "Juan Lindo" in the village of Quebrada Larga, Jamastran, and on the weekends she bakes bread and nacatamales. She lives with a partner who works in a tobacco factory in the City of Danlí. The tobacco companies are a major source of employment in that area. Elizabeth is the mother of 2 dependent children, who are currently in elementary school. With the income that she generates from her business she covers her personal expenses, the financing that she acquires, and she pitches in with her partner to cover certain household expenses.
