Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The Mujeres Por Un Bien Común are in their first cycle with 17 members. The group stands out in the neighborhood for being very united in their community because they do charity work. They have different business activities and others are undertaking new work and have a fixed income.

Liduvina is a member of the group. She has a small, well-stocked grocery store. This business helps her to be able to support her family and give them what they need day to day. She is known as a very hard-working person with a great desire to get ahead and a big entrepreneurial spirit.

Her wish is to continue to have a well-stocked business. That is why she is requesting the loan. She wants to buy sugar, milk, bread, noodles, “yerba mate” (a popular South American herb that is brewed into a high-caffeine infusion), and other items that sell the most.

They are all grateful for the opportunity that they are receiving.

In this group: Liduvina, Esther , Marta , Dolores , Angela , Laura , Emilia , Maria , Norma , Maria , Maria , Gilda , Ramona , Aida , Graciela *, Maria *, Nidia *
