Mujeres Unidas Por El Progreso Group's story

Domitila, 35, has a spouse and four children; she’s still supporting three of them. Domitila started out selling 'anticuchos' [grilled, skewered meat] outside her house and gradually saved up and with help from her spouse they decided to start their own business which she now has: a home-based grocery store. She also mentions that on weekends she provides cooking services where she earns extra income for her home.

Domitila feels happy because she’s able to continue helping her spouse with household expenses with her work and to maintain her business. Her wish is to continue growing in her business. The loan she requested will be used as working capital; she will buy soft-drinks, beer and groceries.

Domitila is a member of the “Mujeres Unidas Por El Progreso” (Women United for Progress) communal bank which has nine responsible members. They are grateful for the loan provided.
