A loan of $3,675 helped a member to buy drinks to sell.


Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The communal bank, "Mujeres Unidas," (United Women) was formed more than three years ago through the management and support of another communal bank that was working in the same place. This group is from the city of San Lorenzo. In more than three and a half years of hard work, they have grown both socially and economically. They are known here as very hard-working women.

One of the members, señora Ignacia, sells drinks. Through this business, she supports her family. She tells us that she has many clients and consequently a lot of demand. Her busiest days are on weekends. On Sundays, most people don't work and they make the most of spending time with their families. She hopes someday to be able to expand her business so she can increase her storage capacity.

The requested loan will be used to purchase drinks like beer and wine to supply her store. She is hopeful for the credit because it will be of much use to her.

In this group: Celsa Ramona, Rufina, Maria, Rosalina, Barsiliza, Idalina, Carmen, Ignacia, Rosalba, Celia, Diana, Gregoria, Blanca, Norma*, Maxima*
