Mujeres Activas Group's story

The "Mujeres Activas" committee has 24 members and is now on its fourth loan. It is a group well known in its neighborhood for being very close, united and responsible, and for working for the community. Some of the women are engaged in productive activities, and others are employed in new work.

One member is Claudelina, who is the president of the group and who sells products for domestic consumption. She is a very active woman, and she is constantly encouraging her comrades to do things to raise money and strengthen the group. Her business generates an income which allows her to cover all the costs of feeding her family. This is very important to her. She wants to use the loan to buy the products she sells in her business, such as rice, noodles, sugar, pastries, etc.

In this group: Claudelina, Nidia, Silvia, Gladys, Ilda, Vilma, Josefa, Damacia, María, Luciana, Maria, Ramona, Cinthia, Emilia, Rosa, Delia, Cinthia, Amalia, Alba, Nimia, Blanca*, Carmen, Eva, Saturnina
