Mujeres Unidas Group's story

This group, called Mujeres Unidas (United Women) has had 13 loan cycles as part of the program to eliminate poverty. It allows them to understand each one's own situation, and to improve by means of this effort.

One of the members is Felipa who works at tutoring students in various subjects at school. She states that this is her primary source of income, as she is also responsible for taking care of her home. She is a very good teacher and that is why she has so many private students. Her dream is to help other people, and she is achieving this with her work.

She is asking for this loan so she can buy educational materials as they will be very useful for the classes she gives. She appreciates this opportunity so she can continue with her work.

In this group: Isabel, Digna, Nicolasa, Karen, Petronila, Francisca, Fatima, Griselda, Lidia, Kariana, Arcenia, Sonia, Perla, Felipá, Adelaida*, Arsenia*
