Unidas Group's story

Unidas is in its 15th cycle of the Women's Committee program, where they all work and help each other get ahead. They are participating in a study to eliminate poverty, and 5 members are under the poverty line, with very low income.

One of the members is Carmen. She has always had to work and strive to get ahead to give her family what they need. She sells all types of clothing and this is how she has the means to help her family. Her goal is to keep working hard so that little by little her business will get better.

She is asking for this loan to buy winter clothing, sine cold weather is coming and this way she can have more clothing to offer her customers.
