Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This committee is called United Women, and it is in it's 12th cycle as a women's committee. All of the women fight to provide the best quality of life for their families.

They set goals to grow, not only economically, but also as people. They all fight to improve their living situation, but because of the Covid-19 pandemic their businesses have been affected and they are all struggling to build them up again.

Among them it is worth mentioning Nilda, who works in food sales. She started when she was very young and has managed to grow little by little, and thanks to her work she has been able to help her family and provide them with a better quality of life.

She is fighting for her own so that they do not lack anything and have all of their necessities. She mentions that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, her business has been affected because she hasn't been able to work normally, which in turn has affected her income.

She is asking for this loan to be able to buy various products to continue making her foods, like baked goods, condiments, vegetables, meats and other product, in order to continue working as she has been.

Note: In this photo there is only one person, but this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo as to avoid a gathering of people due to Covid-19.
