A loan of $2,325 helps a member to buy chicken meat, beef, vegetables, eggs, milk, bread and other ingredients to prepare and sell empanadas.


Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The group is called "Mujeres Trabajadoras" [Working Women], since that is what they are. They look for ways to improve themselves and offer their families a better quality of life than they had. They all have their own entrepreneurship through which they generate an income to help their families.

One of them is Nadia who works selling food. She mentions that months before the pandemic she also made empanadas and chicken sandwiches and sold it on orders and also to the public. But in the face of the crisis the world is going through due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, she has been unable to work normally and generate an income to help her family. This has led to consequences for her business.

She says that she is looking for a way to be able to start her business again and buy ingredients such as chicken meat and beef, vegetables, eggs, milk, bread, etc.

She thanks you for the opportunity received to access this loan and thus succeed.

Note: Only one person appears in the picture but this is a group loan. It was not possible to take a group picture in order to avoid the crowding of people due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
