Deciphering a word from a Spanish birth record (1903 Latin America)


I got my hands on a 1903 birth certificate from Managua, Nicaragua. I speak Spanish (as a non-native), but have issues to decipher one word shown below. I can read ... de Granada.

The whole record for context can be downloaded here, see the (second) column for Josefa Dolores Balladares.

I believe the word is oriunda, meaning native to Granada. The dot on the i has strayed forward a little and the minims are difficult to differentiate. The word also appears in the entry above and is somewhat more clear there.
