The Mujeres Unidas (United Women) group is in their first loan cycle. There are seventeen women in the group and they are well known in the neighbourhood for being very active and responsible. They work as hard as they can to help their families.

Lurdes is a member of the group. She sells milk products. She starts work very early in the morning as she must have the milk available for breakfast. She is a hardworking person and is very keen to get ahead and help her family.
