A loan helped a member to purchase ice cream in a variety of flavors.

Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This committee is called Mujeres Unidas [Close-Knit Women] since that is what they are. They seek the way to be able to improve their quality of life and that of their loved ones through this group in addition to their work together. They are also in the poverty elimination program.

One of them is Limpia, who works selling ice cream to earn her daily sustenance and that of her family. She is an enterprising person who has managed to get ahead and who seeks the way to be able to offer her loved ones the best.

She states that she saw her group as an opportunity to be able to achieve her goals and, with this, to continue improving her business.

She asks for this loan to purchase ice cream in a variety of flavors and, in this way, to be able to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
