Mujeres Independientes Group's story

The “Mujeres Independientes” (Independent Women) committee is from the San Lorenzo zone. They are already well known because of the work they do for their community’s wellbeing.

Several of the women work their own orchards like, for example, Mrs. Fifelina L., who also sells her farm products, once they are grown and harvested, herself. She has all the most frequently consumed vegetables.

This is the first loan of their lives and they are repaying punctually. From Monday through Friday they farm and on weekends they go to the market to sell their vegetables.

In this group: Elodia, Nancy, Herminia, Fidelina, Lisi, María, Agustina, Sofía, Marilina, Lilia, Andresa, Porfiria, Cecilia, Ceferina*, Nancy*
