Norome Group's story

The Norome group is made up of three hard-working, diligent and enterprising women from Masaya, the birthplace of Nicaraguan folklore. One of the women is Mrs Anastia Gaitán who is 40 years old and sells cosmetics. Gaitán started out selling fruit and vegetables in the Mercado Oriental market and two years ago invested in cosmetics and perfumes, a business in which she has done very well.

She is mother and father to two children for whom she works hard every day to keep a roof over their heads, make sure that they have food and that they stay in school. She will use her loan to buy perfumes and one day she hopes to be able to use her own money to finance her business.

Petrona del Carmen M. Paramo is another member of the group. She is 50 years old. Since 1990 she has worked selling second-hand clothes. This is the activity for which she will use her loan. The group's final member is Zeneyda del Socorro who is 21 years old. She started off selling fruit and currently sells firewood.

In this group: Anastia, Petrona Del Carmen, Zeneyda Del Socorro
