Such is the case with the training process that is offered by Adim and where they feel they can learn and relate to other women, which has help them a lot.

The coordinator for this group is Mrs.Ana Julia R. who has been selling soft drinks, cosmetics, trinkets, and piñatas among other products. R. is 33 years old, is married, and has three children aged 12, 8, and 7 who help her with her business. She dreams of starting a small grocery store since there are none where she lives.

Meanwhile, Mrs. María Bertha A. works selling different products in the market. She started selling chicha at her brother in law's but with time and some savings she started her own business. Her other partner Raquel del Socorro Barrios Vazquez sells yoltamal, atol, rice pudding, güirilas among other traditional desserts made from corn. They will invest the proceeds from the loan to grow their businesses by purchasing more and better products and ingredients.
