Mujeres Activas Group's story

This group is called "Mujeres activas" [Active women] and it was formed with neighbours of the Caacupe area, where they all look for ways to improve their quality of life and that of their families. They are in cycle 3 of the women's committee program.

One of them is Cecilia who works in sales. She has a small store in her house and mentions that she started with very little and has been improving thanks to her daily effort and hard work.

She also mentions that due to the covid 19 pandemic her business was impacted as well as her income, and it affected her commitments.

She is a hard working person who is looking for a way to improve her business and expand it, since she was greatly affected by the crisis that affects everyone worldwide.

She is requesting this loan to invest capital in her business and get it up again, and to be able to buy drinks, baked goods, vegetables, fruits, meat and other products in order to continue with her sales as she has been doing.
