Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The committee of women, called Mujeres Unidas, or “United Women” has been part of the foundation since 2007. The committee is composed of 20 women who are working very happily. They are already in their 6th loan cycle. They work together and in solidarity within the foundation’s program for women entrepreneurs. The group stands out for working together and cooperatively.

One of the women is Olga, who sells drinks. Her business allows her to help her family get ahead and contribute to the household expenses. She says that she has good sales, especially on the weekends, which is when most people don’t work and are free.

Since it’s going really well, she wants to continue investing in the business, which is why she is requesting the loan to purchase beers, wines, liquors, and other drinks, which she will use to meet the demands of her customers. Additionally, the end of the year parties are coming up and she wants to be ready.
