Mujeres Talentosas Group's story

The “Mujeres Talentosas” (Talented Women) communal bank is currently in its 5th cycle. It was formed thanks to the enterprising spirit that motivates them each working day. Its members are already involved in a productive activity so each one is developing in her own micro business. They use their loan to foster and vary the activity they are already carrying out such as: purchase of seasonal items like clothes, sandals, athletic shoes, footwear, sportswear, caps, hats, etc.

Mrs. María D., for example, buys and sells clothes in her neighborhood and adjacent areas to provide income for her family so that they can live properly.

All the members double their efforts in an attempt to improve their income and offer their children the possibility of accessing a good academic preparation and thus good employment options.

In this group: Juana, Venancia, Johana, María, Luisa, Gladys, Epifania, Fanny, María , Marcelina, Herminia, Isabel, Antonia, Raquel , Liz, Nélida*
