Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

This group is called Mujeres Trabajadoras (Hardworking Women), since this is what they are. All are self-sacrificing women who look for a way to overcome and offer better living conditions to their loved ones. They are also part of the poverty elimination program.

One of them is Carmen, who makes a living selling clothing. She has a modest business where she offers her customers a good variety of clothing and at a good price. With her work she helps with the expenses of her home and her family. She is married and the mother of 2 children for whom she fights to be able to move them forward and offer them a dignified life without necessities like those she had to go without.

She asks for this loan in order to buy more varieties of clothing, and with this be able to continue her sales and meet the needs of her customers and also help her family as she has been doing.
