Las Unidas Group's story

The Las Unidas group is formed by Lidia del Socorro V. G., Vilma del Carmen M. C. and Yolanda del Carmen B. R.. These three women are from the Los Altos region, which is located on the highway to Tipitapa. This group is starting their thirteenth loan cycle with ADIM. They feel proud of their work for having managed it over three year. Lidia V. is the coordinator. She is 35 years old. Five years ago she undertook the challenge of starting her own business. She did this because her work in the Zona Franca de Tipitapa did not provide enough money for her household necessities. She decided to start selling basic grains in her house. She has been increasing the variety of products with each loan cycle with ADIM. Vilma M. sells Zemat cosmetics in the Zona Franca. Yolanda B. distributes Vogue cosmetics in her region. They believe that they can keep growing through the loans and trainings they have received.

In this group: Lidia Del Socorro, Vilma Del Carmen, Yolanda Del Carmen
