Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This is a group with 8 members who know each other very well because 70% of the group sell footwear. They are a very united group because they see each other every day. The only man in the group works selling cell phones.

The group's president is Manami who lives in her own home in the Los Olivos housing development. She lives with her husband and three school-age daughters. Manami is a very good leader which is why she was elected as the group's president. She is also very supportive and responsible. Her business is buying and selling footwear maD. by a prestigious company. She also sells clothes and silver jewelry as an itinerant street vendor throughout the city of Cochabamba, visiting private and public offices.
