Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This committee is from Comandante P.. They are low-income women who entered the Enterprising Women Committee to unite and form a group.

These women are active. Most are in sales of home use items, handicrafts, food and other activities.

They need this loan to invest in their various enterprises in order to attain sustainable growth that will help them grow as a group and as individuals.

Mrs. Ramona V. is asking for the loan to buy ingredients she uses to prepare the meals she prepares.

She is from a very humble, but very tenacious, family. Each family member is engaged in a different activity to contribute to the household expenses.
Thus, Ramona prepares various types of food items like turnovers, Paraguayan soup and pastries that her children take out to sell.

She tells us that this work is very demanding and takes up a lot of her and her children’s time but to date has been the activity that produces income for her family.

In this group: Ramona, Etelvina, Ermelinda , Olga , Maria Elida, Mirian, Delicia, Maria Lourdes, Vidalina, Ester, Maria, Vidalina, Luciana, Verónica, Natividad , Norma, Juana, Maria Susana*
