Mujeres Unidas Trabajadoras Group's story

The Mujeres Trabajadoras Unidas group ("hardworking, united women) is on its 3rd loan with the women's committee program of their communal bank. They are also in the poverty elimination program, whose most recent questionnaire showed that 11 of these women are below the poverty line.

One of the members, Isabelina, showed in the most recent questionnaire that she is in the 2nd poverty level (also known as the yellow level). With the work that she does in sewing, she helps out her husband in his carpentry work. In addition, she works making and selling cleaning products, which she learned with others' help. Thanks to this, she is trying to improve her standard of living.

Isabelina is asking for this loan to buy sewing materials that she uses in her work, such as fabric, thread, clasps, etc. This will help her to solidify her business plan, which will help her improve her profits.

In this group: Isabelina, Albina, Jorgelina, Maria, Petrona, Maria, Agustina, Liduvina, Eva, Julia, Monica, Ramona, Mirian, Virginia, Carmen, Cintia, Teofila*, Maria*
