Las Aliadas Group's story

The Los Aliadas solidarity group has three members: Elena Francisca Rodríguez, Esther del Carmen Gómez A. and Amada Julia O. Calero. Elena, the group leader, works as a secretary but also has a business selling donuts, fried snacks and tortillas on Sundays. In the beginning she sold caramels as a street vendor. Esther sells repochetas [similar to quesadillas], soft drinks, enchiladas, watermelon and other items.Julia sells sodas, bread, ice cream and snack foods from her home. In the beginning she only sold sodas and break. The borrowers will use the loan to purchase more products to sell.
