In the male-dominated society of Nicaragua, it can be difficult for a woman to advance on her own. Many low-income women have taken to starting their own businesses in the informal economy as a means of gaining some autonomy. The majority of these businesses revolve around food production. Women often produce their goods in their homes and sell them in local markets or right from their front doorstep. These types of businesses have given many low-income women the opportunity to thrive and provide for their families.
