Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The “Mujeres Unidas” (United Women) Communal Bank is in the city of San Lorenzo. One of the members heard talk about the project for enterprising women. She decided to get her friends and neighbors together in order to form the group.

They are hard-working women who plan to get ahead and to give their children what they need for a decent and respectable life. They are known as hard-working women who struggle day to day to bring home more income.

Jorgelina has a general store. It is through the store the she is able to support her family. She has been doing this for some time. Therefore, she has regular customers.

She is requesting the loan to stock her business with grocery products like dairy products, sausages, drinks, and more. Her hopes are placed on the loan because she knows that it will be a big help.

In this group: Felicia, Silvia, Ramona, Celia, Rumilda, Luisa, Jorgelina, Mirna, Florinda, Nicolasa, Vicenta, Irene, Virginia, Elvira, Nancy, Damiana*, Jenara*
