El Laural Group's story

El Laural Group is made up of four hardworking and enterprising people. One of them is Jilma, 46, who has a "fritanga," a restaurant that serves fried food. She started this business ten years ago with very little, and little by little it grew. Her goal is to install a dining room, that is, an eatery with all the necessities.

The other members are Mauricio, who has had an internet cafe and bookstore for six years; Marlene, who sells "nacatamales" [Nicaraguan tamales] and soup on Sundays; and Yalila, 25, who sells clothing and footwear.

In this group: Marlene Del Socorro, Jilma Del Carmen, Yalila Damaris, Mauricio Alberto
