Damas Unidas Group's story

The group Damas Unidas (United Women) formed with 17 women who are neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All of the members of the group work to get ahead every day in their work. The women are friends and neighbors in this city and their goal is to be able to help their families and rise out of poverty.

Asunción is the President of the group and she sells all kinds of garments from a variety of brands. She tells us that it is a little hard because there is a lot of competition but she says that it is important to her to distinguish herself and have good products, which is what is important to clients. She is getting ahead and her business is growing and this makes her very happy.

She is asking for this loan to purchase t-shirts, shirts, blouses, jeans, pants and more garments in order to continue working.

In this group: Asunción, Zunilda Concepción, Dalva Albe, Wendy Ivonne, Francisca, Natividad Concepción, María Isolina, Bregoria, Sanie, Cristina, María De Jesús, Josefa Ramona, Liliana Mabel, Nilda Graciela, Sandra Viviana, Tomasa*, Margarita*
