Mujeres En Accion Group's story

The present committee is in its 10th cycle and is an exemplary group because each member demonstrates unity and responsibility in every task that they carry out. Within this group, you will find Señora Nidia Cabañas, who is 50 years old and has three children. Her main occupation is the tailoring of various types of clothes. She receives her orders from clients and works on them in between her household chores. She states that her income goes towards helping her husband with their living costs. Currently, with her committee, she has received a lot of advice to help improve the effectiveness of her business and hopes that it will continue to grow. As such, she is seeking a loan in order to purchase an overlock machine that would improve the final touches on her clothes. She is a very dedicated mother and hard working woman with a great desire to improve her family's quality of life.
