Let us support our local economy!
¡Letís consume what is really ours!

What are UDIS??
The UDI (Solidarity Exchange Units) are issued and backed vouchers to be used as means of payment or local exchange..

Its main purpose is to promote the preference for local consumption so that the community resources are invested in it

The "UDIS vouchers" are as safe and easy to use as the Colones(Ę), since they are also made in paper money and with the same security measures to prevent falsification. Also hold the same value, so one UDI is equivalent to one colon

Local Trade Network

There is a considerable Trade Network in our community. The members of this network businesses offer a wide range of products and services purchased with UDIS, such as groceries, personal items, health services, fuel, hardware products, household appliances, cleaning materials, supplies, and many others more.

How to participate in this project?

We can all accept UDIS as payment for our work or for the products and services we provide to the community. With the UDI we will get better prices for the goods we consume, yet we give preference to local businesses, and encourage social and economic growth of our community. Let us ensure that the resources generated in the community are reinvested in it, for the benefit of all!

¡Ask your employer UDIS as a way of payment for your salaries, services or products offered!

Approach CoopeVictoria RL and ask how to acquire or increase the amount of UDIS you currently receive.
