Mujeres Maravillas Group's story

This committee was founded by Adelaida G. who lives in Km 7 neighborhood, in Mburucuja. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form a commitee in her area.

The committee is called "Mujeres Maravilla" (Wonder Women). It has 17 very active and supportive members who are all from the same area.

Some of the women already have business activities, others have a regular income and are setting up new businesses.

One of the members of this committee is Ignacia who sells clothes from a sales location that she has set up in her own home. Her entire family help her to serve in her store, depending on who is available.

Ignacia comments that she travels to neighboring countries to buy her merchandise since the prices there are much lower. She is requesting her loan to buy t-shirts, shorts, dresses, etc.

In this group: Ignacia, Adelaida, María, Graciela, Dora, Celsa, Teresa, Reina, Ermelinda, María, Juana, Georgina, Tomasa, Shirley, Maria, Elva, Cecilia*
