Armonia Ii Group's story

The “Armonía II” (Harmony II) group is composed of four hardworking, enterprising women. The group coordinator is Martha Lorena, 43, who has a grocery store; she also sells tortillas, vegetables and pork. She has five children four of which are minors aged 13, 10, 7 and 8 years who attend school and in their free time help her in the store.

She started the business 10 years ago making and selling pozol and tiste [traditional beverages made from cornmeal and cacao] and in time, thanks to her effort and loans, invested in other products like selling scrap metal. She will use the loan to buy products for the business, mainly basic grains. Her goal is to have a supermarket like a PALÍ mart.

The other group members are Claudia, 28, who has a tortilla shop and sells beans, cheese and firewood; Devora, who makes nacatamales [Nicaraguan style tamales] and Estela who sells meat and vegetables.

In this group: Martha Lorena, Debora Rebeca, Claudia , Estela Del Socorro
