Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The group called Mujeres Emprendedoras [Enterprising Women] is in its loan cycle number 8 in the women's committee program, where they all work and help each other to get ahead. They are enterprising women who seek the way to be able to grow and improve their quality of life and that of their families.

Among them, Mariza is worth highlighting, who works in sales. She has a modest store in which she works every day from early in the morning. She says that, with great sacrifice and effort, she has been able to grow and get to where she is today, since she began with very little. She defines herself as a determined person who is not afraid of work.

She asks for this loan to purchase a variety of products for her store, such as dairy products, meat, candies, beverages, baked goods, food, and more.
