About the Artisans

On a quiet, bricked street on the outskirts of Managua, Dona Mayra del Socorro Parrales y her husband, Don Jose Maria Carrillo, operate their small recycled aluminum casting business, Pewter Nica, out of their concrete block home.  It’s a very peaceful workshop where much pride is taken in their work as well as their relationships with their workers. The employees earn 1 ½ times the local minimum wage and enjoy the stability of full time employment, something that is really valued in a country where over 80% of the population lives on less than $2/day.

On a personal note, when their son, Diego was only five years old, he was abandoned by his mother in the barrio of Don Jose and Dona Myra. Even though Dona Myra and Don Jose had three biological children already, they took this “street” child into their home and eventually legally adopted him. It's truly amazing, the generosity and sense of social responsibility in the people and villages where there is already so much poverty and difficulty.  So much good is being done!
