A loan helped a member to buy seasonal clothing and shoes for children.

Mujeres Unidas Desmochados Group's story

The Mujeres Unidas Desmochados Group is comprised of women who are the heads of their families. They decided to take the opportunity to work together in order to be able to achieve their goals and to give their families a better quality of life. They are in the elimination of poverty program.

María is one of the members. She is married, and she sells clothes by order. She says that she really likes her work because she does it from the comfort of her home. She posts photos of the clothes on social networks so customers can make their orders. María 's dream is to one day be able to set up a small place where she is able to display her clothes and to be able to increase her stock.

She is requesting this loan to invest in her business and to buy some seasonal children's clothes and shoes for her stock in order to be able to increase the products that she sells.

Note: Only one person appears in the photo, but this is a group loan. A group loan was not possible in order to avoid the gathering of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In this group: María, Mirian, Ramona, Herminda, Delasnieves, Clara, Ramona, Marta, Quintina, Maria, Edit, Damiana, Petrona, Juana, Isabel, Rilsy, Antonia, Lyans
