A loan of $3,100 helped a member expand her grocery store.

Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The Tenacious Women Communal Bank was formed by the union of various neighbors in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. All of the bank’s members carry out different business activities like sales and preparing fast food.

However, as the members formed a very united group, they were capable of jointly carrying out their activities. This strengthens their camaraderie.

Bonifacia is one of the members of the bank. She sells various products and “mini cargas” (credit for cell phones, which is very common in the neighborhood general stores) for the community. She needs the loan to increase the size of her grocery store.

In closing, she is a very creative woman, and her customers greatly admire her work.

In this group: Juana, Sofia, Bonifacia, Amalia, Ana, Maria, Ramona, Ramona, Digna, Dionicia, Maria, Maria Lina, Ofelia, Lidia, Elvira, Maria*
