Mas Que Vencedores Group's story

Olga is 36 years old and has 2 small children. She is a member of the group "Mas que Vencedores." This group has 7 members who all reside in the La Balanza neighborhood in the Comas district. Her fellow group members elected her to the position of treasurer on the board of directors of the group.

Olga works daily at her job as a secretary, and in her free time she supports her mother in her dressmaking workshop.

Twelve years ago she set up this workshop in her mother's house with the goal of helping her mother economically, since as a dependent worker she did not have much income and was lacking the money needed to support the expenses of her mother.

Today, she has managed to provide a stable economic situation for her mother, and above all, it is an activity that makes her feel good and useful. She has been able to buy her equipment and gradually improve the setup of her workshop.

One of Olga's main desires is to be able to acquire some land and manage to have her own home. The loan requested will be invested in materials such as fabric, thread and buttons to supply her workshop with materials.

In this group: Olga Beatriz, Martha Mercedes, Juana Jesus, Carmela, Rosario Lourdes, Francisco Teodoro, Missu Evelyn
