G.s Vida Eterna Group's story

Santos is 41 years old, is mother to 3 children, and lives with her husband. Her business is the sale of nacatamales [Nicaraguan tamales], fruits and vegetables. She has been engaged in this income-generating activity for more than 20 years.

Santos has very good customers, the majority of whom are neighbors in her community and people who pass through her house. She is applying for the loan to buy rice, sugar, shortening, sodas, meats, chicken, beef, pork, pastas, cold cuts, instant soups and ingredients for making nacatamales.

Santos, as well as others in her group, hope that the investment they make in their businesses helps them increase production, which will help them increase their earnings, improve their living conditions and grow their businesses.

Eugenia has a small grocery store. Gregoria sells fruit. Yamileth makes her living selling bread and staple foods.

In this group: Santos Jhaneth, Eugenia, Gregoria Del Carmen, Yamileth Maribel
