Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The person that took the initiative to form this group was Mrs. Celsa S. of the San Antonio neighborhood of the Cuidad del Este. She got her friends and neighbors together to form this committee.
They are called Mujeres Luchadoras (Struggling Women) and are in the first cycle with 10 members. It is a very united, caring and responsible group, the members have an enterprising spirit and promise to be on time with the loan payments through the raising of funds and motivation, and intend to finish this stage responsibly compliant with the institution. The obtaining of the loan opens a lot of door for them and their progress in their enterprises.
Mrs. Celsa sells food and beverages at her stand. She offers her services especially to those people that cannot return to their homes at lunchtime. She prepares her home cooked meals to bring the best service to these customers who are also hard working people.
She requests this loan to purchase refreshments, baked goods,condiments, fruits and vegetables.

In this group: Celsa, Mercedes, Mariana, Lilian, Cecilia, Alicia, Eliodora, Leonarda, Lucía, Silvina
