Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The group called “Mujeres Unidas” (United Women) is in its fourth cycle in the women’s committee program. All of them help each other out in order to get ahead and so each can grow in her own enterprise. They are completing the poverty elimination survey in order to know each of their situation; four of them are below the poverty line.

One of these is Dorila who is in level one, that is to say, very low income. However, she strives to continue growing and by means of this effort to improve her economic situation.

She is grateful for this opportunity that will allow her to continue growing in her enterprise.
