G.s. Mujeres Responsable Group's story

The supportive group known as Responsible Women consists of 2 members who each carry out different economic activities. In the case of Justina, she is a single mother, 47 years old, with 2 under-age children in her care. Her economic activity is the sale of snacks and refreshments. In spite of the difficulty that she has to maintain the business, she is one of the most enterprising and dynamic women of the group.
The other associate, Modesta, is 44 years old. Her economic activity is clothing sales. She began her business with a lot of sacrifice and due to her very good administration she has managed to do well with her business. She is a very responsible woman. They have united in order to do well. In spite of the fact that they have had many challenges, they are very persevering and hard-working. The reason for the loan is for working capital for the purchase of merchandise for their businesses. The dream of the 2 associates is to help their families and to improve their living conditions.

In this group: Justina Antonia , Modesta Del Socorro
