A loan of $4,375 helped a member to buy supplies for her grocery store.

Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The "Mujeres Unidas" communal bank was created by bringing together several neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All the members have formed a group that is very close-knit and able to jointly carry out activities that strengthen their partnership. They are very hard-working individuals, eager to improve themselves.

Maria is one of the group members. She is married, and tells us that she and her husband support their two children, who are the reason why they both work very hard. She is very satisfied with her business, and with the training that the group receives.

She is applying for the loan, because she wishes to supply her grocery store, as she doesn't want to lose any customers. She wishes to buy dairy products, baked goods, vegetables, fruit, and other basic household products. The group is very happy about the help they receive.

In this group: Maria Estela, Nila , Lourdes , Maria , Ilda , Alicia , Victoria , Maria , Liliana , Myriam , Maria , Gloria , Carmen, Inocencia, Silvia*
