Chiltoma Group's story

The "Chiltoma" solidarity group is composed of Nubia Auxiliadora, Maria Elena and Consuelo del Carmen; three energetic and hard-working women. This group has been working with ADIM for 8 loan cycles, and they have shown themselves to be good, responsible clients.

Nubia Auxiliadora, 24, is the coordinator of the group. She has been selling fruits and vegetables in the Masaya market for 5 years. With the loan, she will buy taro root, chayote squash and other products.

The other members are Maria Elena, who sells nacatamales and yoltamal (both are traditional nicaraguan corncakes), and corn etc. Consuelo is 60. She butchers pigs, and sells the meat and by-products in the street. They will all use the loan to buy merchandise.

In this group: Nubia, Consuelo, María
