Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The group, "Mujeres Luchadoras", is a committee in its fifth cycle. It consists of low-income women who struggle to improve themselves and to be able to help their families. They are also part of the program to eliminate poverty, fighting to give the best to their families.

Lorena, through her daily struggle and sacrifice, brings her family ahead, with her sewing work. She says that she has customers who like her work a lot because she is very good at what she does.

Lorena does not let herself be defeated and strives so that her family is not deprived of anything and are not in need of anything. She asks for this loan to be able to buy fabric in quantity, threads, rubber, and other items.
