Mujeres Activas Group's story

"Mujeres Activas" ["Active Women"] is the name of this excellent group of women that formed in the city of VilL. Elis, thanks to Ms. Anna. Anna contacted the adviser at a weekly meeting she had in the area to inform people of how the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs Program works. Once Anna was educated about the program, she was able to gather 15 women who are now very pleased to be working in their fourth loan cycle. They work with solidarity and in a unified manner within the program.

Ms. Anna has been selling food for many years. She says that every day she starts working at a very early hour, preparing the dishes she will sell. Through this work, she has succeeded in maintaining her family. She feels very proud of this, as she has been able to achieve everything she has thanks to her efforts.

She is requesting this loan to purchase ingredients that she needs for making her dishes, such as meat, eggs, spices, pasta, and others.

In this group: Anna, Celina, Susana, Maria, Idalina, Luz, Felicia, Maria, Catalina, Lilian, Maria, Graciela, Rosa, Marta, Maria
