Mujeres Unidas Group's story

The group Mujeres Unidas (United Women) has worked in the Cerrito Zone, Capiatá, since two years ago. They meet regularly on Mondays and pay in advance whenever they can. They finish all of the payment cycles one or two weeks before the due date. The women who make up this group sell things in their neighborhood, selling from their own homes or going from house to house to sell their products. Liz Lorena B. Cook - Silvia R.
