Mujeres Independientes Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy mirrors, razors and other tools for barbering.

Mujeres Independientes Group's story

Johanna Lizeth, in the middle of the group in the picture, wearing a checkered shirt and grey trousers, is 42 years old and a member of the "Mujeres independientes" communal bank. She has been working with Pro Mujer for one year and is grateful as, in this community, she does not feel discriminated. "I feel accepted in this group and Pro Mujer supports me", she says between tears of joy.

Johanna needs a loan. With her partner, she makes and sells costume jewellery and coconut oil. She will use this new loan to open a barbershop and buy what she needs, such as mirrors, razors and other tools for barbering.

Please support brave people like Johanna, who have dreams and aspirations in a world where they are discriminated against.
