Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

There are 12 women who make up the group called “Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Enterprising Women), which describes what they are. All of them are seeking to provide better living conditions for their loved ones. They are women with limited resources, so they are determined to have the opportunity to grow and improve their quality of life.

One of the members is Anabel, who makes her living by selling ice cream. Even though her work is modest, she does everything she can to help her family. Anabel is a hardworking individual who makes sacrifices so that her loved ones can avoid going through hardships.

She is requesting a loan to buy different flavors of ice cream since the warmer season is approaching. This will allow her to satisfy her customers.
