Mrs. Inez is the president of the association. The business that she has been in for the last 10 years if the sale of meals. She comments that her mother-in-law was the one that showed her this business.

Her first request was for 1000 Bs., now she is requesting 2500 Bs. In both cases her goal is the purchase of supplies. She makes her sales in the markets. Her 4 children help her with the work.

When asked what she likes the most about Pro Mujer, she says it is the training.
