A loan of $2,525 helped a member to buy notions and lingerie.

24 De Enero Group's story

This committee was formed thanks to Irma Elvira who lives in the city of B.. The reason why the group President put in such an effort to form this group was wanting to help each one of them because they all want to get ahead through all the effort they are putting into it in the short period of time they’ve been in the committee. They gladly accepted to form a women’s committee that they called “Comité 24 D. Enero” (January 24 Committee.)

The committee has 20 members. Each has a small business to dedicate herself to regardless of its size. The women feel very excited; mutual help among them is constant and, above all, they are inspired by the desire to continue fighting for their families, working as a team and using all available resources makes their struggles their greatest strength.

One of the members, Catalina, hopes to get the loan to buy various notions and lingerie at wholesale to resell to smaller businesses, like stores, thus attaining her goal of improving more each day.

In this group: Irma Elvira, Roberta Pana, Carmen Esmilce, Tranquilina, Catalina , Blanca Isabel, Liz Graciela, Evelia Daniela, Saba Aurora, Irma Ramona, Belén , Reinalda , Isadora, Hilaria, Liz Narcisa, Gumercinda, Primitiva Raquel, Emilce *, Dionicia*, Verónica*
