Estoy Confiando Group's story

Estoy Confiando (I Trust) is a group composed of three hardworking and resourceful women. They are native of Masaya, a very old settlement whose existence dates back to the aboriginal days. Agriculture is the main economic activity of the village while craftsmanship (wicker made items, carpentry, shoemaking) is its main commercial one.
Karina is the group’s coordinator and she started working by selling plastic bottles to be used for recycling. Thanks to what she has earned from this she has diversified her activity and has started engaging in creating wicker chairs together with her husband who is a carpenter. To make one chair she spends between 400 and 500 cordobas approximately.
The other members of the group are Zelania, who has been selling “nactamales” (a typical dish made of corn and pork) and fried pork for 2 ½ years and Silvia, who has been selling used clothes for 1 year.

In this group: Kenia, Silvia, Zelenia
