Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The Mujeres Unidas group is in its first loan cycle for its committee. The group is taking a poll to eliminate poverty and to understand everyone's current situation and to show what everyone has at the moment. Rafaela took the poll and ranked in the middle level, with a very basic income.

Due to her efforts, her work continues. Training and incentives given by the foundation help her improve her situation of living in poverty. Rafaela has a small shop in her home. She is requesting this loan to buy products for her business such as fruits, vegetables, meat, baked goods, and more. She will then sell these, which will help her to have a concrete business plan. This will allow her to improve her profits.

In this group: Rafaela, Laura, Gladys, Lida, María, Antonia, Sara, Genara, Celina, Claudia, Soledad, Clotilde, María
