Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The Mujeres Unidas committee is made up of 15 women who work together and decided to help each other. Today they are in their 6th cycle with the committee of women program. They are participating in the poverty elimination survey so that they can know the situation of each member. Two of the women are in the red level, with low income, but they make an equal effort to improve themselves.

Porfiria is an example of that effort since she is a person who makes sacrifices. She starts her day very early in the morning since she has to organize her small but well stocked store. She says that her family always supports her and that they are everything that she needs.

She is requesting this loan to purchase vegetables, fruits, grains, dairy products, and other items since she needs to stock her store with all types of products. She is grateful for this new opportunity that they are receiving.

In this group: Porfiria, Celsa, Filomena, Lidia, Nilsa, Ninfa, Perla, Francisca, Bernardina, Asuncion, Norma, Lilian, Sintia, Viviana, Alicia*
