Grupo Solidario Mujeres Unidas Group's story

Ana is a 36 year old single mother of one daughter whose principal business activity is selling groceries, which she has been doing for the last 6 years. Ana is requesting support in order to purchase products like sugar, butter, soap, sodas, meat, toilet paper, corn, beans and other staple products which will help her achieve good customer service. She has her business strategically located in her home, and the support of the requested loan will contribute to the improvement of Ana's business which will allow her to have better earnings. This will cover household costs and give a better quality of life to her daughter and help her to get ahead with her studies; she works very hard to create a strong family legacy.

One of Ana's dreams is to have one of the best grocery stores in the area. Another member Ramona makes a living selling nacatamales (steamed corn cakes) and other dishes, while Blanca has been selling prepared food and candy such as "tajaditas" (sauteed bananas), "baleadas" (tortillas filled with beans), hot dogs, and breads with meat for the last 4 years.
