Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The group has the name "Mujeres Trabajadoras" ["Hardworking Women"] since this is what they are. They want to excel and to have a better quality of life, as well as to overcome their everyday obstacles. This is why they are also in the elimination of poverty program.

One of them is Giselle who makes a living selling all kinds of ice cream. It is going well because of the constant warm climate. She says that she wants to have a big business where she could offer her customers better comfort.

She is grateful for the opportunity that she is receiving to be able to join the committee since it will be a big help for her in order to be able to invest in her business.

She is requesting this loan in order to be able to buy ice cream in a variety of flavors. In this way she will be able to continue with her business as she has been doing.
