Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The Women’s Committee named “Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Women Entrepreneurs) was formed on May 17, 2006, as a result of promotional events conducted by the local representative. Today, twenty women have joined and continue to work with the same level of enthusiasm and effort. They are working in their sixteenth loan cycle together as part of the program.

The group has an excellent payment history and the members treat one another very well. Thanks to their work as a solidarity group, the members have been able to increase their incomes. To this day, they continue to work with the program.

This loan will be used to buy merchandise for a food pantry such as rice, sugar, noodles, dairy products, baked goods, tea, and other items. Sra. Marciana has a small food store that provides for the daily needs of her family. She wants to give her children a better quality of life and provide for their general well-being.

All of the group members actively participate in the weekly meetings and work together harmoniously.

In this group: Marciana, Estela, Liz Paola, Antonia, Rosalina, Maria Laura, Bernardina, Isabel, Lidia, Nilsa, Lourdes, Liz, Nelida, Arsenia, Ricarda, Elizabeth, Maria Elvira, Florinda*, Laura*
