Union Group's story

The Union group is in its third loan cycle. All the women are working towards a better standard of living as part of the elimination of poverty program in which they are seeking to improve and develop their lives.

Sra. Justina is a member of the group. She earns her living making traditional cheese bread, work which allows her to help her family and provide them with a dignified life. Justina says that she has a regular clientele who always buy from her as the bread she makes is the most delicious and her customers like it a lot. She is grateful for the opportunity to be able to work together with the group, an opportunity which allows her to invest in her business and continue providing her family with the best she can.

Justina is asking for a loan to buy ingredients such as corn flour, cheese, eggs, butter etc. so she can continue making traditional bread.

In this group: Maria, Angelica, Sandra, Antonia, Angela, Mirna, Myrian, Ada, Justina, Eliane, Ydelina, Laura, Ninfa, Adriana, Susana, Cinthia, Liz
