Unidos Para El Exito Group's story

The Communal bank "United for the success" is represented by the lady Vilma and consists of 10 members which are very enterprising and industrious. They all have their own businesses, some in their residences and others in the market.

In the case of Señora Carmen, she has been dedicated to the sale of foods for 3 years, but that is not sufficient for her so at nights she sells salchipapas (a native dish with sausage and fried potatoes) and roast chicken in the door of her house. With the profits she can contribute to the family expenses, since she is separated from her husband and has 2 children to maintain.

The president, Señora Vilma endeavors to maintain her convenience store and do well. She is a very responsible person and works well with the group. She has 5 children of which only 1 is under her care. With the loan she obtains, she will be able to buy some products that she needs to serve her clients.

Hilda is dedicated to the sale of carbonated drinks and candies in her house. In addition, to obtain extra profits she learned handicrafts and sells crocheted items such as handbags, shoes and other products at the choice of the client.

This group very is united and supportive since they are very hard-working people with many desires to do well. That is why the loans they receive will be invested in the purchase of products and supplies that permit them to offer good service to their clients. All the members are thankful to EDAPROSPO AND KIVA for the confidence shown them in giving them loans.

In this group: Vilma, Hilda, Beatriz, Alex Carlos, Luis Enrique, Luis Alberto, Carmen Rosa, Morelia*, Maria, Juan Alfonso
