Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The Mujeres Luchadoras Group is in its eighth women's committee cycle and all are struggling for a better quality of life for their families so they lack for nothing. The members are also in the poverty elimination program, striving to improve their situation.

One of them is Carmen who is in sales. She has a store and every day starts work in the early morning hours. She says this business has helped her loved ones to get ahead and lack for nothing. She defines herself as a hardworking person who seeks ways to offer her loved ones everything she never had.

She is applying for this loan to be able to buy a variety of products to sell such as vegetables, fruits, baked goods, meat and other products to continue her sales activity as she has been doing. She is grateful for the opportunity to continue improving and helping her loved ones.
