Mujeres Tunecas Group's story

Dalila T. H. is a 25 year-old woman who was only able to finish 6th graD.. She has 2 children who are in school, and she has been selling perfumes daily since she was 15. She does this to support herself and her 2 children. Her husband provides some minimal support; he pays for the schooling of the children. As she and some of her neighbors in the same community saw the need to expand their businesses, they formed a group to request a loan. The group is called "Mujeres Tunecas," and is comprised of 5 women who work in different areas, for example: the sale of chocolate, the sale of clothing, and the sale of everyday consumer goods. They will use the loan to increase their working capital. This will help them to increase their incomes and in this way improve the living conditions for themselves and for their families.

In this group: Dalila , Heidy Marisela , Lidia Marina , Florinda , Sara Esther
