El Manguito Group's story

The group is named El Manguito and is made up of four people, each of whom works on her respective activity. The one who was interviewed is named Liliana Yaneth, who is married to José Ricardo, with whom she had a child who is six months old. She lives in a town called Sandino.

She is requesting a loan to invest in buying coffee beans, and later sell the coffee ground. She has been working on this for a year and it is going well for her because she has received better income. She began this activity because she wants to help her husband with the household income and give more than the necessities to her son. What she wants with this little job is to continue getting ahead and so generate more income in her home.

The people who form this group are Máxima, who will buy and sell chickens and turkeys, and María del Rosario and Lucila, who will buy and sell pigs.

In this group: Maxima , Maria Del Rosario, Lucila, Liliana Yaneth
