Union Y Solidaridad Group's story

This photo was taken at the home of Sra. Minerva Pérez, a member of the group “Unión y Solidaridad” (Unity and Solidarity) which is located in the State of Veracruz in Mexico. Minerva began selling household items five years ago. She is requesting a loan to acquire more merchandise. Her sales have improved, so she is requesting this loan to invest in more products. Minerva is 29 years old and studied for a business degree. She is the mother of a one year old son. Minerva hopes to generate more revenue and improve the quality of life for herself and her son.


Silvia M. is the group president. She is 35 years old and studied through high school. Silvia has two children. She began selling shoes through a catalog three years ago. Silvia is requesting a loan to buy shoes for the school year since students are returning to classes.
