Sonrisas Group's story

Sonrisas (Smiles) is a solidarity group made up of three entrepreneurial women, all of whom are looking for a way to fulfill their dreams through daily work and effort.

The president of the group is Yasmina, a brave woman full of virtue and Christian values. She is 31 years old, has three children, and lives with them in the city of Cayambe. Yasmina is a very hard-working and enthusiastic woman, which is why she has been able to win the appreciation and recognition of her community.

The loan she has requested from FODEMI will be invested in the purchase of products for her stationery bazaar, such as notebooks, office materials, paper, costume jewelry, etc. This will be a very profitable investment since Yasmina has had her business for a long time and is very well-known in the city of Cayambe.

Yasmina's dream is to continue working in her establishment to be able to build her own house to give her children a better quality of life.

In this group: Yasmina, Aida, Alicia
