Fortaleza Group's story

The group called “Fortaleza” (Strength) has been working with Pro-Mujer for five years. They now have eleven members and have demonstrated themselves to be a group that is organized in paying their loan amounts. Currently this group has a variety of businesses. For example, Roberto sells a variety of toys, others sell cosmetics, or groceries, and some members make sweetbreads and pastries and have tea and cafeteria businesses. They need capital in order to buy more ingredients and merchandise so they can have better incomes; this will allow them to provide better living conditions for their families.
