Las Mujeres Para El Desarrollo De Villa Madrid Group's story

The “Las mujeres para el desarrollo D. Villa Madrid” (Women for the Development of Villa Madrid) village bank started when a number of neighborhood women came together in the city of Mariano Roque Alonso.
It's a tight-knit group, with some members who are strong leaders who help the others move forward, and some who are more timid but who want to grow as people and as a team, even though it can be challenging.
Mrs. Gladys C. is very dedicated to her family and makes a lot of sacrifices for them. She has a small business selling everything from fruits and vegetables to household cleaning products. She decided to open her small store to increase her income for her family. Before opening the store, days would go by when she didn't even have enough food to feed herself. It is for this reason that she wants to progress, so that none of her children have to suffer, can study, and make a decent salary. She'd like to receive this loan so she and her family can prosper.

In this group: Gladys, Hilda Joaquina, Cristina, Dionicia, Elena, Tania, Norma Candida, Iluminada, Karina, Ana Maria, Mirtha Ramona, Adela, Blanca Noemi, Ramona*, Clara*, Evangelista*
