Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The group named Mujeres Unidas is in its first cycle of the program of women’s committee. They are making the survey for the elimination of poverty to be able to measure the income of each one. Two of the fifteen women find themselves below the poverty line. They are struggling to grow and come out ahead.

One of the members is Edith, whose survey resulted in a very low income level. Is it precisely because of this that she makes a maximum effort to continue growing and improving. She makes a living selling food, and says that she wants to grow to improve her life and that of her family.

She is applying for this help to be able to invest it in the purchase of vegetables, meat, condiments, and other supplies to be able to continue making the foods that she sells. Through means of herself and her work she continues improving the quality of life of her family.

In this group: Perla, Melchora, Liz, Delia, Maria, Lisa, Nelva, Nathalia, Shirley, Maria, Marta, Michelle, Patricia*, Favia*, Edith*
