Amigas Unidas Group's story

The formation of the present committee was started by Mrs. Elvira, of Yguazú. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form the committee in her area. The committee is called Amigas Unidas [United Friends] and they are in their sixth cycle with 13 members. It is a very united, supportive and responsible group. The members possess a very motivational and enterprising spirit. They are on target for meeting the quotas for their businesses and the collection of funds. They expect to finish this stage with very good performance in meeting their obligations with the institution.

One of the members is Mrs. Elva, who sells clothes and herbal medicines out of a room in her home. She also offers her services by visiting her customers' businesses. In this manner, she is able to sell her products and earn an income for her family to cover some expenses that are necessary in the daily life of the family, such as basic nutrition. She is requesting the loan to purchase clothing and herbal medicines.
