Guayacan Group's story

Marisela del Socorro M. Chavarría, María Dolores G. and Silvia Lorena B. Gonzales make up the group Guayacan. They are three female entrepreneurs, fighters, and hard workers. Miss Marisela del Socorro M. Chavarría has been selling cosmetics, creams, and perfumes door-to-door for eight years in addition to having her own sewing shop. In the same way María Dolores G. Carballo sells cosmetics and underwear on the streets of Managua and Silvia Lorena B. Gonzales distributes clothing and cosmetics. From the early hours of the day the women prepare themselves to go out and work and they return to their houses exhausted from the long walks in the sun and the incessant heat of Nicaragua. But upon seeing their children, they know that what they do is for their wellbeing.

In this group: Maricela , Silvia , María
