A loan of $6,500 helps a member to buy supplies to expand the business .


06 Siempre Unidas Group's story

My name is Mildred Giovana and I am married with 5 children. I started my business selling empanadas and then I continued selling lunch to customers.

I have been selling for 6 years. My day starts at 7am when I have breakfast and I go to the market to buy products so that I can make lunch for noon and grilled chicken at night.

I invested the previous loan in fabrics to make decorations and currently I will invest the loan in supplies to expand my business and improve my income and help to improve the situation of my family.
