Unidas Para Triunfar 1 & 4 Group's story

Benita is the coordinator of her group Unidas Para Triunfar (United to Triumph). This group is located in the urban slums surrounding Santiago, an area known for its tobacco production, where running water (none of which is potable) and electricity are unreliable. All the 10 women are dedicated to selling clothes, shoes, cosmetics, beauty salon, etc. Benita makes her home here in a simple structure with her long-term partner and their two children.

Benita is excited to be taking her fifth loan with Esperanza after having successfully repaid her previous loans and grown her business. All these loans have given the opportunity to increase her sales and to get more clients. She plans to use this loan to invest in her business by purchasing clothes like jean pants, t-shirts, blouses and underwear, also she is planning to buy a bag of used clothes, which she could sells by pieces.

Benita will use the profits to save, she has been finishing her house by using previous loans benefits and her house is almost built. Her dream is to one day be able to travel the world with her family. She thanks you all for your support.

In this group: Benita, Jesus, Ramona, Agustina, Lina, Santa, Yoselin, Martha, Elizabeth, Niurka
