Banco Mujer Mujeres Unidas Group's story

Sara is a 34 year old woman. She is married and the mother of four children. She lives with her husband and children, three of whom are in secondary school and one in primary. Sara is a very hard-working woman who puts in the effort to achieve her goals.

Sara lives in a very rural community named Shiroles. Her husband is a day laborer and gains little from his work. For this reason, Sara started raising and selling chickens to support their family's needs and her children's schooling since all four are in school. She also carries out other activities including the sale of food in her community in order to generate greater income, while still caring for her family. Sara receives support from her family in the raising of chickens. She has been a client of the Foundation for several years and has always been responsible and punctual.

Sara and her seven group members are planning to strengthen their businesses raising animals, farming, and making catalog sales. They dream of developing further to get ahead, overcome challenges, and improve their and their families' living conditions.

In this group: María, Sara, Kimberly, Bernardina, Joselyn, Marta, Johanna, Seidy
