Siempre Unidas 2 Group's story

“Siempre Unidas 2” [Always United 2] is a group composed of 12 women from the city of Concepcion who have united with the urge to help one another and thus, also, their families. They are excited to form part of the group, which will help them a great deal.

On of the members is Teresa who is president of the group. She together with her husband have a butcher shop where the majority of the neighbors come to buy from them. In addition to this, Teresa's husband sells vegetables that they grow themselves. This is a hard-working family with the urge to get ahead.

Teresa is requesting a loan to buy cuts of meat to re-supply her business and in this manner, to offer a good quality product to her customers.

In this group: Teresa De Jesus, Emiliana, Beatriz, Maria, Hilda, Elvira, Maria, Pacuala, Blanca, Marcelina, Sebastiana, Estela, Clara, Bernarda*
