Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The group called Mujeres Unidas is in its 18th cycle with the women's committee program, where all work and help each other thrive. They are fighting to better themselves and also to be able to give their loved ones all that they could not have.

Mónica is one of the members of the group, who works in a hair salon. She mentions that her work helps her family and she seeks to give them a dignified life without deprivation. She has created an established client base and looks for a way to improve herself and continue fighting as she has been doing.

She mentions that due to the COVID19 pandemic and the quarantine enforced by the government she was not able to work in a normal manner and this prevented her from being able to meet her obligations.

She asks for this loan to be able to inject capital in her business and with this supply her hair salon with dyes, creams, shampoo, rinses, spray and other products in order to be able to continue improving her business.
