Mujeres Emprendedoras 2 Group's story

This committee is very active with the work that the members are involved in. That is to say that abilities of the women serve them well in these days to make them feel confident to begin an activity that is not only related to housework. The majority of the women work as domestic servants, that in the past never led to any outside business by the women‘s committee. But in today’s world, by being part of a committee of entrepreneurial women, there is an attitude of feeling of their belonging, and of being able to fulfill the requirements demanded by the foundation. Thus they can continue receiving capital to satisfy the needs of their small businesses so that they will generate more income.

These women are grateful to the foundation for giving them a valuable opportunity and every day they hope to have more experience in the program to fulfill their obligations as members.
