Unidas Por Siempre Group's story

The 'Unidas Por Siempre' community bank is a group with eight members who have been working within the Prosperidad program for four months.

Yanina is a member of this group. She is 39 years old, separated, and has two dependent children. Yanina has been selling clothing for more than 15 years. With some effort, she was able to set up a space in her home where she can display her garments. Over time, she has improved her business and started selling beauty products as well. Yanina is proud because, through her hard work, she has been able to help her children in their studies and improve their home.

With the aim of continuing to make progress, Yanina has requested a loan to invest in her business buying polo shirts, shorts, skirts and beauty products such as perfume, talcum powder, creams, etc. This will give her more products to offer her customers. Yanina's wish is to continue growing in her business. The 'Unidas Por Siempre' community bank are grateful for the help that they are being given as it will enable them to make progress.
