Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This communal bank is comprised of 15 women who are ready to progress. They decided to participate in the Women Entrepreneurs Communal Bank program. They are very humble and hard-working women. They make up a work team with joint responsibility. They are independent in their work such as selling food, having a grocery store, and selling fruits and vegetables. They will use the loans they receive to buy sugar, meat, flour, eggs, noodles, sweets, and cheese, etc. They want to make personal and familial progress with this loan that was granted by the Fundación Paraguaya. Maria Luisa is a very hard-working person who has had a grocery store in her house for several years. She does this to provide her neighbors with all of the food they need. However, she wants to have a greater variety of products, which is why she needs the loan.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Leonida, Ladisla, Gladys, Rosalba, Benicia, Lucia, Isidora, Maria Lorena, Rosa, Eva Mariza, Mariza, Lucia Graciela, Juana, Dora
