Los Unicos Group's story

The venture bank group Los Unicos is comprised of eight members in their first cycle. They all live in the same neighborhood in El Carmen, nine kilometers from Santa C.. They have had their own business for two years.

Lizeth is the president of the bank group. She was chosen for her responsibility, camaraderie, and solidarity, which she has demonstrated in her treatment of the other members. Lizeth sells catalog cosmetics from a prestigious worldwide company. With this loan, she will buy cosmetics on sale. The magazines promote products much cheaper than their original prices, and in subsequent publications the cheaper products become much more expensive, and this is how she makes an extra profit.

The majority of the members of this venture bank group are heads of family and they are fighters. They dream that their businesses will expand and be very successful, and then they will be able to improve the quality of life for all their families. They are grateful to the institution for having the confidence in them to loan them credit.

In this group: Lizeth, Franklin , Sonia, Paola, Casimira, Cinthia, David Fernando, Mario
