Las Unidas Group's story

The Las Unidas group has this name because they are all united women who are fighting to grow and move forward. It is a new group that is on its first loan cycle, learning to work together. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, in which the majority are improving their lifestyle. One of the members is Ambrosia, who is the president of this group, and she says that because of this, she always motivates her friends to keep working and growing. She says that she makes empanadas, sandwiches, milanesas (breaded meat fillets), and marineras (meat covered in Paraguayan tortilla). She sells dairy products as well as sodas and mineral water, among other things. She emphasizes the great effort she makes since she wants to continue improving and moving forward. Ambrosia is applying for this loan to buy water, sodas, milanesas, empanadas, and other things to later sell them and this way be able to continue with her sales, invest in her business and improve her income in order to continue helping her family.

In this group: Ambrosia, Rosa, Mirtha, Fidela, Beneranda, Casaria, Hilaria, Amalia, Rosana, Lidia, Mirna, Sandra, Inasixta
