Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The group called Mujeres Emprendedoras is a new group in the women's bank program, in which they all work and mutually help each other get ahead.

Francisca is one of the members of the group. She's looking to make a change in her business and give her family a better quality of life. She's a very selfless woman who doesn't give up despite having a problem with her vision. She always looked for how to get ahead for her loved ones.

With her son's help she makes handicrafts like guampas [cups], bombillas [straws], and mirrors that she sells, and she helps support her household with this. She's grateful for the opportunity she's getting to join this group, an opportunity she hasn't received elsewhere.

She's requesting this loan to be able to buy tools and supplies to be able to make her handicrafts, and that way continue with her job, as she has been doing.
