Mujeres Del Éxito Group's story

Mrs. Martha S., 38, is married and finished 6th grade. She has four children of various ages. The oldest is 16 and the youngest is 6. Her husband makes pants and she sells chicken meat in the market. She has been in business for 10 years since this activity helps her earn profits that she can contribute towards household expenses and her children’s education.

She always dreams with having a large business and with enthusiasm, desire to stand out and with help from some neighbors and fellow church members, the decision to form a group to request a loan was made.

The communal bank is called “MUJERES DEL ÉXITO (Women of Success). The name was chosen by all the members with the thought in mind that having their dreams come true and being successful in their businesses depends on each one of them.

The group has 10 female members who are in a variety of activities among which are: sale of typical costumes, sale of replacement parts, and teaching in neighboring villages.

Martha will use the loan as working capital to increase her profits. She considers that help from this loan will increase his business leading to better personal and family development.

In this group: Martha Fermina, Juana, Mirna Lizbeth, Mayra Yasmín, María Victoria, Herlinda Eugenia, Olivia Esmeralda, Catarina Noemí, Rosenda Victorina, Marta Isabel
