Querer Es Poder Group's story

In one of the Focal Centers of Pro Mujer (For Women) Los Andes the communal association Querer es Poder (To Want is to Be Able) is found, with approximately seven years in existence. One of the founders of the association is Rita C. and she remembers that the group was born by inviting friends and neighbors from the Los Andes neighborhood to join.

Rita enjoys participating in the meetings with her group because it is a moment of relaxation and recreation to share with friends and forget about problems. She also likes to attend the large meetings to get a general overview. The members of her group for the most part work in the sale of clothing like overcoats, jackets, pants, and other articles. They assure that they will use the loan for the purchase of merchandise.

In this group: Rosmery, Liliana, Margarita, Renan Roly, Rita Teodora, Janneth Deisy, Sayda Cindy, Mary, Tatiana, Amalia, Viviana, Katherine
