Unidas Por Siempre Group's story

The communal bank "Unidas por Siempre" is a new group comprised of 8 women entrepreneurs willing to work hard in the Programa-Prosperidad.

Isela is 36 years old, separated and has six school-aged children. In her lifetime she has had several businesses involving food sales (breakfast, pumpkin fritters, kebabs) and has been able to provide for her children with the help of her ex-partner who pays child support. She tells us she also has started a new business selling beauty products to earn mO. income. This is of great help since her eldest daughter will start high school.

Isela's dream is for her daughter to finish her gastronomy studies so she can set up a restaurant at home, and with much effort she hopes to be able to do it. The loan she has requested is to buy supplies for the pumpkin fritters, such as flour, sugar and disposable plates. The "Unidas por Siempre" communal bank is grateful for your help. Isela is the one in the white long-sleeved top.

In this group: Dominga, Jane Alida, Katherine Vanessa, Yanina Susana, Cinthya Janeth, Margot Carmen, Isela Dorita, Diana Yuriko
