Mujeres Poderosas Group's story

The group is called Mujeres Emprendedoras (Enterprising Women) as that is what they are. They are women who undertake and strive for a better quality of living for their loved ones. .

One of them is Nimia, who joined the group a number of years ago. She earns a living selling natural remedies and terere (a cold yerba mate infusion), a tradition in the country. She mentions that she strives to improve and not give up in spite of having been in an automobile accident years ago that left her with damaged motor skills. She will not quit and looks for a way to be able to continue to help her family so they lack for nothing.

She is requesting this loan to buy natural medicines as this will allow her to continue working.
