UNION LATINA´S Funding goal
The greatest challenge Union Latina has at the moment is to grant an income to the elite dance team, these dancers are the ones who are performing professionally. Due to their talent they are generating revenue to Union Latina but is not enough to keep a payroll for the group.
It is necessary to create a motivation for the dancers in order to keep them in the project, some of them are already getting offers to join other companies that will pay them a salary, we want them to be the teachers and the inspiration for the young ones. We believe that by paying each of them a fix amount (Subsidy) of 200.000 COP plus connecting them with our partners will be a motivation enough for them not to give up on the project.
