Maritza Nieves is a recurring character in A Long Road to Fortune.
A lifelong resident of the Costa Grande region, Maritza has had much history in both Tecpan and Tenexpa. Her marriage to a local politician propelled the woman out of her humble beginnings and into a life of vanity.
Maritza and her son stayed put in Tenexpa. Her husband's whereabouts became unknown.
Maritza is introduced in her circle of gossip, inviting the naive Alejandra over to join them. Maritza and the rest of the discuss Telma's supposed promiscuity before she inquires to Alejandra's preference amongst the cartel hitmen, but the girl reveals that she is too terrified of all hitmen to feel any attraction to them. When Alejandra makes her leave, Maritza and her girlfriends talk about the girl, with Maritza dismissing the idea of Alejandra becoming her daughter-in-law, finding the girl too ditzy for her tastes. They then gossip about Alejandra's rumored lovelife with her roommate Lucas, before speaking of her own fling with sub-capo Claudio.
