Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The communal bank group Mujeres Luchadoras was formed by friends and neighbors of the city of Mbocayaty, district of Villarrica. The members help each other and they have defined objectives. They want to give their families everything they never had themselves.

One of them is Alba who runs a pharmacy at home. She says she started out with very little and has been improving thanks to daily work and effort. Despite daily challenges she strives to give the best she can to her family so they lack for nothing. She says that due to the Covid-19 pandemic her work has been affected and she was unable to work as usual. This has affected her income and meeting obligations.

Note: There is one one person in the photo but is a group loan. The group photo was not possible because of the social distancing due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
