Mujeres Calificadas Group's story

The group called "Mujeres Calificadas" [qualified women] is in its seventh cycle in the program of the women's committee, where almost everyone works and helps each other to get ahead. This group is from the city of San Lorenzo. The members of the group set as their principal objective the growth of each one of them. They are recognized in their area as very hardworking women,

One of the members is Lourdes, who through effort and continuous work, and through the sale of jewelry, earns her living in a dignified and honest way. She is a hardworking person who seeks the means to be able to improve herself and get ahead. She reports that, due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the quarantine, she was not able to work as usual; her business was almost nothing, which affected her greatly. Nevertheless, she turns to the Fundación to be able to get herself and her business going again.

She requests this loan to be able to buy more jewelry, and so to be able to stock and strengthen her business to be able to get ahead. She appreciates the opportunity she receives, which will be of much help.

Note: Only one person is in the photograph, but this is a group loan. It was not possible to get the group together to take a group photo due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
