Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The committee of Mujeres Emprendedoras (Entrepreneurial Women) formed more than three years ago through the leadership and support of another committee that was working in the area. This committee is from San Lorenzo and in over the past more than five years of intense work they have grown socially as well as economically and are recognized in that area as very hard-working women. Cristina, for example, sells fruits in a stand that she owns, but due to the seasonal change in the climate (summer to fall) she would like to be able to expand the range of fruits that she offers to her customers, but she needs a loan to help her to be able to acquire a large quantity of fruits so that she can improve her income.

In this group: Yanni, Cristina, Lida, Maura, Delma, Nidia, Deidamia, Graciela, Alicia, Johana, Maria Limpia, Marcelina, Lucia, Ramona, Silvia, Graciela, Noelia, Miguela, Mirna , Bernardina
