A loan of $2,200 helped a member expenses for improving her home.

Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This committee is in its third loan cycle. The members work jointly so that each individual, and the group, can continue to grow. They try to fulfil all the responsibilities that each member has.

Here we can mention Mrs Ana Maria C.. She is 35 years old and has two children who stay in the house while she goes out in the morning to sell lottery tickets. She returns home to make their lunch and then goes out again in the afternoon to sell her tickets.

Ana Maria is a long-suffering woman who has a very difficult day every day because when she gets home from work she has to do her housework. She does everything to get herself and her children ahead in life as she is a single mother. Ana Maria has a very small, poorly-constructed, house. She works so that she can cover her home expenses and those of her two children who go to school. She is requesting this loan so that she can cover home expenses as the Christmas period is approaching and the income she makes from her business doesn't stretch far enough to cover the improvements that she would like to make on her home.
