Melanita Del Socorro's story

Melanita started working in a sewing workshop as her mother had taught her how to sew. Later, with the money that her husband gave her, she bought raw materials and started to make her own merchandise, which she did using a rented machine. She is very grateful to ADIM as 3 years ago they financed the purchase of a sewing machine and she now uses it to make typical clothing which she sells in the Masaya county market. She lives with her husband and 2 children; her kids go to school and her husband does agricultural tasks. She dreams of having a big workshop with 3 sewing machines and one of her own, as her products are very much in demand.
