Las Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

This group of people resides in Colonia Santa Fe, located in the municipality of San Antonio, Suchitepéquez. Previously, they lived under very difficult conditions because they did not have enough income to cover all the household necessities. Typical expenses included educations for their children, medical care costs, and food for their families, therefore they could not offer them a very bright future. As a result of these needs, they turned to the Association to request a loan to be able to start businesses to help them generate additional income; businesses such as sale of tamales, other food, drinks and tortillas. The effort of this group can been seen through their accomplishments and, likewise, they are very responsible and have known how to invest the loans provided by the ASDIR Association well.

In this group: Wendy Carolina, Olga Marina , Gloria Elizabeth, Elena
