A loan of $1,625 helped a member purchase of animal feed.

Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This committee started when the members were invited to join by other members working with the Comité de Mujeres program.

In this way, between neighbors and friends, the group grew and today each member works and is able to access credit to invest in her work, emergencies or other needs.

To make their repayments, the members collect money from their work activities and in this way meet their responsibilities together. One of the members is Hermelinda, an active and hardworking woman.

She owns a farm, raising various animals and selling milk, eggs, hens, and other products to her neighbors in the area. Hermelinda invested her loan in the purchase of wholesale animal feed.

In this group: Hermelinda, Edith, Irma, Liliana, Cynthia, Flora, Lidia, Clotilde, Blanca, María, Maria, Eduvigis, Marta, Claudia*, Angelica*, Cynthia*
