Mujeres Unidas 4 Group's story

This group was started by señora Zunilda R.. It is located at kilometer 9 in Acaray in C.D.E. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the group in the area.

The group is called "Mujeres Unidas 4" (United Women 4). They are on their 10th loan cycle and have 17 members. This is a very united group that is known in the neighborhood for the work they do together and also for the seriousness with which they take their responsibilities in the group.

Each one of the members is taking out a loan to invest in her business to start, improve, or increase the quantity and variety of merchandise that she has. Señora Virginia, the president of the group, took out her loan to buy a large quantity of spices in bulk so she could divide them and package them in small quantities. She works in this way, selling small quanities of spices to different businesses. In this way, she obtains a good income for her family.

In this group: Virginia, Zunilda, Atanacia, Justina, Rosa, Vicenta, Natalia, Clotilde, María, Olga, Nidia, Ursulina, Deisy, Cándida, Liliana*, María*, Bernarda*
