Grupo Las Amistosas Group's story

The group "Las Amistosas" are natvies of the La Montanita region in the city of Masaya. It consists of three women: Victoria del Rosario C. Gomez, Maria Antonia J., and Heyling del Rosario Lopez C..

Maria Antonia J., a young woman of 34 years old, is married, and has five children (2 teenagers and 3 young children). The teenagers help with the making of hammocks and cloth products. They are students in the community school. Her husband works in the fields and does not help much with paying the family bills. For this reason, she has been in business for 4 years. The workshop is located in her house.

Once the product is finished, it is brought to be sold in the Masaya market. The loan that she needs will be used to purchase the materials, such as spools of thread, at Masaya la Manila and in her community where the best prices are offered.

She thinks that she will have a larger production in the future and a large workshop that can bring employment to her family and support her children during their education.

In this group: Victoria Del Rosario , María Antonia , Heyling Del Rosario
