Mujeres Activas Group's story

This group is named Mujeres Activas [Active Women] because that is what they are: they all work hard to offer their loved ones a better quality of life. They are in the poverty elimination program, in which they give the best of themselves to better themselves.

One of the members is Dayana, who sells covered thermoses. She is excellent at what she does, which is why she always has a lot of work. Her goal is to invest capital in her business so that her loved ones will not lack anything or have to endure any hardships. She says that she is happy for this opportunity to join the group, which will be a lot of help to her.

She is requesting this loan to buy thermoses, leather, glue, and other products to continue her work and meet customer demand.
