Mujeres Unidas Group's story

Mujeres Unidas is a group from the city of Encarnación that has had 15 loans so far. They are currently participating in a survey focused on eliminating poverty, which will allow them to get to know the unique situation of each member.

One member, Candelaria, has a kiosk in her home where she sells different types of supplies. With her kiosk, she is fighting to be able to provide her family with everything that they need. Candelaria is a determined person who wants to get out of poverty and expand her small business venture. She will use her loan to purchase food products for her business to stock it and continue to provide the things her customers need.

In this group: Sonia, Candelaria, Noelía, Elba, Mercedes, Gladys, Celina, Leonarda, María, Fátima, Fanny, Norma, Lorenza, Perla, Nilda, Tomasa*
