The goal of this committee is that they all can work as one to be able to achieve their goals together. They are female heads of household who help each other and work, struggling to be able to achieve their objectives.

Among them, Ana is worth mentioning for her enthusiasm and desire to improve herself. She has 3 children for whom she struggles tirelessly to be able to give them everything she was unable to have and so that they do not experience hardships. She has worked from a very young age in decoration services, which she began with an aunt. She says that, with with this work, she helps her spouse with the household income.
