La Union Group's story

One year after their initial committee was progressively abandoned by its members, a few of these women decided to join forces and create another committee, hoping to grow and to avoid the same mistakes they had made in the past; this is how the group named Comité La Union (The Union Committee) was born.
The women who currently compose the group are residents of the Barcequillo neighborhood in the town of San Lorenzo: they have had the chance to keep on working with the same institution, and their work has progressed on a daily basis.
Cinthia owns a fruits & vegetables stall that attracts many customers, thanks to the quality of her products as well as to the caring way she tends to her customers.
She wishes to improve her income, and she plans to do so by lowering the price of her products through the wholesale purchase of bigger quantities of products.
She would also like to buy a wider variety of seasonal fruit.

In this group: Cinthia, Erma , Albina, Limpia , Mirta , Sandra, Teresa, Natividad, Alicia, Pablina, Mirna, Rita, Ana, Angela, Luz, Ignacia, Liliana, Lidia
