Mujeres Unidas Al Progreso Group's story

This group is in its 23rd loan cycle. The members have worked together for a long time in a cooperative manner as they strive to improve. For this reason, they have named themselves "Mujeres Unidas al Progreso" (United Women for Progress), which is quite appropriate since they are close-knit and all of them are looking to make progress. They are also participating in the poverty elimination program and have taken the poverty elimination survey.

One of the members is Sra. Esther, whose results indicated that she is at a Level 1 poverty stage. In other words, she has very low income. Through her work and effort, she continues to apply the essential behaviors that are characteristic of a successful woman so that she can begin to improve. Esther sells cosmetics and is requesting a loan in order to buy a wider variety of products. This will enable her to continue her sales and strive toward improving her income.

In this group: Marta, Limpia, Silvana, Esther, Lucia, Maria, Constancia, Adelaida, Victoria, Maria, Laura, Ruth, Lida, Isabel, Gregoria, Cinthia, Rafaela, Susana*, Debora*
