Karla Group's story

In photograph from left to right: Nancy Mercedes Tercian Vasquez, Karla de los Angeles S. Vasquez and Mercedes del Carmen Hernandez Orozco. The solidarity group Karla is from the locality of Las Flores, city of Masaya. Their businesses are the making of clothing, shoes and a beauty salon. They are well known and trusted in the community, they are young women with a lot of drive and the desire to work and improve themselves. They like to work with Adim because they receive training in how to improve their businesses. Mrs. Nancy makes clothes; she has a small workshop in her home where she makes aprons, school shirts and tablecloths. She has a small child, and started her business to generate more income and help with expenses. Her husband works in a textile company, which is what gave her the idea for the business. Mrs. Mercedes del Carmen makes woman's shoes, she has two workers, her workshop is in her home. With credit she purchased glue, leather, and plastic to design her sandals. She hopes to improve her workshop and make it weather-proof, since presently she cannot work when it rains, as it is out in the open. Ms. Karla de los Angeles has a small beauty salon in her home, very good clients, and needs the loan to buy cosmetics for use in her shop. She was selected the group's coordinator, responsible for collecting the payments and dropping them off at the Adim office. She dreams to improve her beauty salon, purchase more mirrors and provide a better atmosphere to the place. Her husband works at a chicken processing factory and helps with the household expenses; she has three school-age children, and this business has helped her provide for her children immensely.
