One of them is Virginia who sells nacatamales [Nicaraguan-style tamales], an activity she’s been doing since very young and the business she’ll invest the loan in. She’s married and only has one, 13-year-old daughter in her care.

The other group members are Ángela who has sold vegetables for the last two years and Osmar who has worked in hauling for the last two years.
