Mujeres Unidas Group's story

There are 15 members of the group called, Mujeres Unidas. It is a new group where all the women have the desire to be able to offer their families a better quality of life than they have.

One of the members is Laura, who earns a living through sales. She has a general store where she works tirelessly every day. She says that, although her business is modest, she is happy with what she does, as with this she helps to sustain her household and family.

She asked for this loan to be able to buy products to stock up her store, such as vegetables, fruit, bread-making products, a variety of drinks and other products, and in this way she will be able to satisfy her customers. She is grateful for the opportunity that she has received to join the committee which will be very hepful for helping her family with this.
