A loan of $4,725 helped a member to purchase animal feed.


Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The communal bank, “Mujeres Unidas” [Women United] was formed in the city of Santaní. It is in a predominantly rural zone where all the women work very hard for their families, and to be able to help their community, which is still very poor.

One of the women, Estelvina, works raising and selling, and butchering farmyard animals such as chickens, pigs, and sheep; and in this way she endeavors to earn a small income so that she can support her family.

She is a woman who is very industrious, and above all, she is a fighter. She is requesting this loan in order to invest it in the purchase of animal feed, so that she can continue raising her animals, and have the income to support her family.
