El Árbol Group's story

The El Arbol (The Tree) group is composed of four hard working women. One of them is Mrs. Lidia Marina Dávila who owns a tortilla shop. She makes cakes, refreshments and nacatamales (Nicaraguan style tamales popular as weekend fare). She started this business 30 years ago in order to provide her children with a good education and life. She dreams with improving the business and to stay healthy in order to see her grandchildren grow up.
