Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The name of this communal bank is Mujeres Unidas [Women United], since that is what they are. They all have a common goal, which is to provide for their families and give them a higher quality of life. In addition, they are part of the program to eliminate poverty, striving for a better future.

One of the members, Juana, supports her family by selling vegetables on the street. She says that she has been doing very well and that her work has allowed her to provide for the needs of her loved ones. Juana describes herself as a fighter who does not give up. In spite of the difficulties, she is constantly looking for ways to improve herself.

Juana is asking for this loan in order to purchase a variety of fresh vegetables so that she can continue providing fresh produce to her customers while continuing to help her family.

Please note: Only one person appears in the photo but this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group photo because of the need to avoid crowds of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
