Berly Cordero - Founder and Executive Director

Berly Cordero hails from modest beginnings. She was born to a poor family in the Dominican Republic and immigrated to the Unites States at a young age. She earned her bachelor degree from New York City’s Fordham University and spent 8 years working in affordable housing and international development. In 2014, she moved to Nicaragua, driven by a desire to work on the ground in a developing country. While volunteering in microfinance and working with local women she noticed a need and desire from micro-entrepreneurs for greater training and support, which resulted in the founding of Women's Worth, Inc.
