Las Domesticas Group's story

The 'Las Domestica' group is made up of three hard-working, driven and entrepreneurial women who are from Managua. One of them, 43 year-old Julia A., hand makes brushes for washing clothes. She learned this skill from her father.

Julia has been in this business for 15 years and, through it, she has managed to get her four children aged 25, 23, 21 and 16 ahead in life. She will use the loan to buy materials such as wood, nylon, staples, etc.

The other members of this group are Margarita L. A., who has been making brushes for 10 years, and Dolores Ramírez who has been selling Avon products for five years. Vacation, Saturday.
