A loan helped a member to buy assorted products to restock her small store.


Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The group called Mujeres Luchadoras was formed by the coming together of, as the name of the group says, "Determined Women" who are searching for a continuous way to be able to help their families and give them better living conditions.

Among them, it is worthy to mention Maria, who has a small store where she sells all types of products. She says that it is going well, since she was able to create a group of loyal customers.

However, due to the COVID 19 pandemic and the total quarantine in the country, she cannot work normally, and this has not allowed her to be able to work to generate the earnings needed to cover her obligations.

Maria says that this situation is difficult, but that she will not allow herself to be defeated. Both she and her companions are fighting to get past this situation.

Maria is requesting this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of products to restock her business so that she can begin her work again and build up her business.
