Mujeres Fuertes Y Unidas Group's story

Hercilia Anita is 49, married, and has four children. The children are the driving force and the motivation for her effort and sacrifice in order to get ahead.

She is a member of the Mujeres Fuertes y Unidas group. It is comprised of nine other members. They live in the San Agustin area in the Comas district.

Hercilia Anita works all day in her bookstore and bazaar. Five years ago she set up a small bookstore in order to be able to take care of her children at home. The store was growing little by little until she converted it into the bookstore and bazaar that it now is.

With her business she is able to support her daughters with their expenses, which range from registration fees to school materials. That way she makes an important contribution in maintaining her household. She also enables her children to move ahead toward a profession.

She will use the requested loan to buy supplies and some gift items to stock her business.

In this group: Hercilia Anita, Graciela, Saturnino, Mario, Roxana, Maria Candelaria, Nancy Miryan, Liliana Janet, Judith Veronica*, Lourdes Isabel
