Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The members of the "Mujeres Unidas" ["United Women"] communal bank work in a variety of fields, but they always take part in activities together as a way of keeping their unity. Currently they are in their fifth lending cycle, and they mention the responsibility and unity that exists between the members.

Elizabeth is one of the members. She comments that she has a small, well-equipped beauty salon, where she tends to all her customers. She comments that she began with a modest beauty salon, and that thanks to her efforts she now has a good customer base, and has been able to grow her business a little. It is the means with which she is able to support her family, and she wants to be able to continue with it. She is requesting the loan for the purchase of shampoo, rinses, dyes, nail enamel, and other products with which she can continue her business.
