A loan of $5,125 helped a member to purchase various kinds of jewelry to sell.


Mujeres Unidas Group's story

Seventeen women compose this group, which is called Mujeres Unidas [United Women]. They are all friends and neighbors in the city of Caaguazú. They are part of the elimination of poverty program that uses a 50-indicator-survey through which each woman will be able to determine her living standard.

Señora Lourdes is part of this group. She sells various kinds of jewelry and other products on foot. She is a person who stands out because of the sacrifices that she makes in order to be able to improve her life and that of her family, and give them everything that she was not able to have, so that they will not lack for anything. Her family is her strength and her reason to strive.

She is requesting this loan in order to invest in the purchase of various types of jewelry to sell, as she has orders that she wants to fulfill, and this way, she will be able to continue working as she has before. She is grateful to have this opportunity to be able to continue growing, and improving her life.

In this group: Alba, Teresa, Felipa, Leticia, Betty, Higinia, Sunilda, Florencia, Lourdes, Justina, Liz, Miryan, Lorenza, Migela, Pablina, Delia, Julia*
