Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The "Mujeres Unidas" ("United Women") group is in its fourth cycle of the committee program. The group is from the city of Curuguaty, which is not too far away from the central zone. This area is growing, and the group members want to fight to grow and to give their area a better atmosphere to continue growing gradually.

Ubaldina is one of the members of this group. She is from a neighborhood in Curuguaty where she has a small business selling vegetables and ice cream. Through her work, she is helping her family and providing them with their day-to-day necessities. She is a fighter and an enterprising woman. She says that as time goes by and with the help of everyone in the area, they can improve their surroundings and offer their families better security and a better future.

She has applied for a loan to buy vegetables and to expand her ice cream shop. She will then be able to continue growing her business and thus give her family everything they need to live free from hardship.

In this group: Victorina, Cynthia, Ubaldina, María, Librada, Norma, Susana, Marina, Angélica, Lilian, Sara, Mariela, Ester, Rosa, Jorgelina
