A loan helped a member to buy a variety of cosmetics to sell.


Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The group named Mujeres Unidas was formed from the union of friends and neighbors from the city of Caaguazú, who are looking for ways to be able to improve their and their loved ones' quality of life.

They are in their first cycle of the women's committee program.

Alicia, who makes a living in cosmetic sales, is an entrepreneurial person who has been getting ahead by her own efforts and struggle.

She says that with this she provides for her loved ones and tries to give them everything she didn't have.

She says that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, her sales have gone down, which is why she needs to be able to make use of a little working to be able to increase them.

She is seeking this loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of a variety of cosmetics to sell, to be able to meet the demands of her clients.

She is grateful for the opportunity she has received to be able to continue with her work and invest in it.
