Susana Group's story

This solidarity group is located in the region of Pacayita in the Masaya municipality. The three members all work making and selling furniture. Their workshops are located in their home patios and they sell in the country markets. Generally, they have fixed customers who buy all of their products. They buy their materials together to get them cheaper. They are very united and have good recommendations.

Susana has been a wood craftswoman since she was very young; she learned this activity from her parents. She is a single mother with a four-year-old and a six-year-old, which is what drives her to succeed so she can give them an education and provide for them. She works with her younger brother who is also single, and they have organized themselves to manage the business. They have four workers, and Susana owns the machinery. She has her own house, which she has been building little by little. The products they make are doors, furniture sets, tables and dining tables. In many cases, the orders are strange, but they learn to make them.

She hopes to keep growing with Adim; she is very satisfied that she is able to work for herself and to have obtained credit based on trust.

In this group: Susana Gabriela, María Magdalena, José Félix
