A loan of $4,200 helped a member to buy milk to sell.


Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This group is called "Madres Unidas" (United Mothers, in English) and is on its seventh loan cycle. In this program of committees of mothers everybody works and tries to move forward. All the members of the committee are above level three on the poverty scale, thanks to having constant help in their work. All are now in the green area and have improved greatly.

One of the women is Manuela, who is a very hard-working person with a lot of desire to move ahead and progress. She makes a living selling milk and starts work very early in the morning in order to provide her customers with the freshest products. Through her work she has gotten ahead and she wants to continue this.

She is applying for this loan to buy milk as with it she can increase her stock and continue providing a good service to her customers. This will help her to improve her working plan.

In this group: Aurora, Narcisa, Maria, Andrea, Mariana, Estela, Adrea, Sandra, Regina, Manuela, Antonia, Luciana, Cipriano, Ana*, Diana*, Venancia*
