A loan of $600 helped a member to buy beans, corn, and cocoa.

Doña Nubia Group's story

Alba Nubia Mejía E. is the founder of the group. Nubia is 59. She does a little bit of everything. She sells cooked beans and “pinolillo” (a drink with cornstarch and water). She raises and sells chickens. She sells “pinol” (a corn/cocoa-based powder used to make drinks) and lemons. Fifteen years ago she started cooking three pounds of beans. After that it started growing.

Agustina Ángelo F. Obando is another member of the group. She started selling tortillas. Then she introduced dairy products and “chicharron” (fried pork rind).

The other member, Natalia A., has a small sales business.

In this group: Alba Nubia, Agustina Ángelo, Natalia
