Unidos Con Exito Group's story
The group, "Unidos con Éxito" (United with Success) has 10 participants who are characterized by their desire to advance their lives through hard work. Ms. Jesus has been part of this group for two and a half years and currently serves as treasurer. She's 43 years old, is married, and has three children who are the reason and the support for her desire to succeed. Ms. Jesus is involved in several income generating activities: she sells bibles, for which she has set up a stand in her neighborhood's church; on weekends, she makes tamales to sell to her neighbors, family, and friends; and she is planning to restart a home business selling juice. She has told us that her dream is to find a prosperous business she can carry on from home, since her home is located on a busy avenue. With her work, she has been able to pay for her son's university entrance exam's academic preparation, and has been able to help her husband during difficult times. She will invest the loan she is requesting in buying tables, utensils, and a canopy for her juice stand.
