Meet Community Partners - Natividad Ortega
Natividad Ortega, known as Tiva, is married to Rigoberto Alvarado, the President of Dulce Vivir. She was born in Santa Rosa and grew up in Dulce Nombre. She likes to work around the house, and contributes to the family income by cutting coffee and making cigars to sell in Tegucigalpa, Chuluteca, and Danli – where the family comes from originally. Tiva acts as the “collective mom” for Dulce Vivir. While we were there, her house was always open for us and she often brought watermelon for the workers, or even a shirt to protect us from the sun.
