Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The group “Mujeres Emprendedoras” begins the eighth cycle of the women's committee program, through which all members fight for a better quality of life for their families so that none of them needs to go through any hardship.

Catalina is one of them. She sells clothes and has a modest business, which allows her to offer her family decent living conditions. Despite the difficulties, she has never given up. Catalina is an enterprising woman who looks for ways to improve herself and with that spirit, she was able to continue offering her loved ones things that she did not have access to earlier.

She requested this loan to buy assorted clothes to sell, such as shirts, pants, blouses, t-shirts, shorts and others so that she can continue expanding her sales as she has been.
