Zenzontle Group's story

The Zezontle Group is comprised of four hard working, determined, and enterprising women who have had various cycles of working with Adim. These women have been able to continue expanding their businesses thanks to the loans and advice on how to manage their income as provided by the institution.

The Group’s coordinator is Elba Rosa S., 43 years of age, who, three years ago, opened up a small stall. As time has gone on and with the help of previous loans, the stall has expanded to become a local store.

Her colleagues in the Group include Milagros F., who for the past 20 years has been making hammocks and who with the loan will purchase materials such as Manila hemp, dyes, etc; Alma Nubia L. C., who started out by selling bread and who now sells clothes and plans to invest in this business with the loan; Gema Auxiliadora M. L., who since childhood has worked in a grocery shop due to the fact that her mother did this for a living and who currently manages such a shop.

In this group: Elba Rosa, Milagro De Los Angeles, Alma Nubia , Gema Auxiliadora
