Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This group, called Mujeres Unidas [United Women], is in its third cycle of the women committee program, thanks to its members’ work. They took part in the poverty eradication survey, and most of them were found to be above the poverty line. They learned how to make cleaning products through a program to increase their income.

One of the members is Mrs. Mirian, who is in poverty level 2 according to the survey, something that inspires her to work harder and get ahead. Mirian sells empanadas [stuffed bread or pastry baked or fried] and beverages. It is important to highlight her effort to learn and improve more every day. Her goal is to have her own food business one day and continue to delight her customers with the delicious foods she prepares.

Mirian is requesting this loan to buy beverages and ingredients for her food, such as meat, flour and eggs. This will help her to make her business plan a reality and improve her income.

In this group: Dalia, Liz, Eugenia, Berta, Mirian, Gertrudis, Daysi, Amada, Aurora, Ana, Benita, Carmelina, Jorgelina, Adriana, Luz*
