Mujeres Unidas Group's story

12 women make up the Mujeres Unidas (United Women) group in the city of Ybycui. They are completing the survey for poverty elimination, where it is shown that one of the members lives below the poverty line.

One of the members is Señora Marcelina who makes a living selling food of all kinds and says that she already has good customers, which she has formed with much sacrifice and effort. Marcelina hopes that over time she will be able to have a large place that has greater comfort for her customers, which will also help her to get higher profits.

She asks for this loan so that she can invest in the purchase of vegetables, meat, seasoning, and other ingredients to continue making the food that she sells and thus also continue pleasing her customers.

In this group: Maris, Miguela, Marcelina, Maria, Pablina, Teresa, Elida, Maria, Mirian, Fatima, Maria*, Liz*
