Unidas Group's story

The “Unidas” (United) Group is represented by Angela and consists of 12 members. Two of those members, Maria and Huascar, are cousins, but they each have incomes completely independent of each other and so they do not pose a risk to the group. A majority of the group members make a living selling products such as food, mail-order cosmetics, bread, clothing, and toys. Their competence in the commercial environment is high enough, but their dedication and willingness to work are the factors that truly prevail above the competition. This loan will be used for the acquisition of merchandise, supplies, materials, and for the expansion of their storefronts, which will allow the group to earn higher incomes to provide their families with a better quality of life. In general the members of the group have experience thanks to financing from entities similar to the Agrocapital Foundation and so they understand the process as well as the responsibility and commitment required of them in order to receive financial support for their businesses.

In this group: Angela, Karla Jimena, Elizabeth, Maria Eliza, Maria, Huascar Jaime, Felipe Victor, Estefania, Nilsen, Angelica, Julitza Nineth, Lucy
