Los Jirones Group's story

This group is made up of three women entrepreneurs, one of whom is Casimira, who is 28 years old, married, and has four children, ages 11, 9, 3 and 1. Her business for ten years now is selling pre-paid cell phone minutes and wood, and working in agriculture. Casimira says that her husband helps her to buy and sell the wood. Casimira is requesting this loan to buy beans in bulk in the north of the country, which she plans to sell in Masaya [a city south of Managua]. Maria is 28 years old and her business is a small grocery store. Maribel is 37 years old and her business is selling rice pudding and fritters.
