Unidas De Potrerito Group's story

The members who make up the committee Unidas de Potrerito [United Women of Potrerito] carry out all manner of domestic labor. They have their own garden plot where they cultivate their products which they sell both within the community and beyond. They are all residents of the same neighborhood and work together closely in every job they do.

One of the members is Susana who currently is providing domestic services in various family homes. She does work such as laundry and ironing, general cleaning and cooking. She works all day long outside her home; therefore, her wish is to have a business that helps her with expenses in which she can stay at home and work from there.

She is requesting this loan to buy winter clothing (sweaters, pants, jackets) so that she can start selling clothing. In this way, she hopes to expand her income and her client base.

In this group: Susana, Rosa, Emilia, Rosa , Gloria, Basilia, Lorena, Maria, Alhine, Zunilda
