Mujeres Triunfadoras Group's story

Juliana Isabel is 39 years old and has five children, three of whom are minors and she is their sole caregiver; she is both a mother and a father to them. A year ago she became part of the "Mujeres Triunfadoras” (Winning Women) group, made up of eight people, all residents of the Comas district.

17 years ago Juliana Isabel started selling soft drinks on foot, but four years ago she began selling candy on public busses. Before beginning her sales, she sings a couple of songs.

On Thursdays and Sundays she sells appetizers in front of her parents’ home. Thanks to her work, she was able to buy a cart from where she can make her sales and provide financial support to her children.

One of her future projects is to open a store, and she puts forth lots of effort to save her money. She will invest part of the money from this loan in soft drinks and the rest she will use to pay for an eye operation, which she desperately needs in order to be able to continue working.

In this group: Juliana Isabel, Dora Angelica, Marco Aurelio, Veronica, Violeta, Ana Maria, Jesus Elvira, Dilian Marina
