A loan of $1,425 helped a member to buy drinks to sell.

Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The Mujeres Unidas (United Women) group is in its first cycle. They are learning to work together and to engage in activities that strengthen their camaraderie. The members took a poverty elimination survey, and the results indicated that two of the members are living below the poverty line.

Sara is one of the members, and she was within level one poverty stage in the last survey. She says that among the work that she does is selling drinks and a volleyball court. It also should be noted that she is a very hard-working person. She has always put forth great effort in order to give her family everything that she was not able to have.

She is requesting this loan in order to be able to invest in her business. This way she will have more drinks to offer her customers, and she will also have better income.

In this group: Sara, Montserrat, Epifania, Pablina, Victoria, Marina, Antonia, Liz, Rosa, Margarita
