Mujeres En Acción Group's story

The present committee was formed thanks to the initiative of Señora Rosalina. She contacted her neighbors and friends to form this group in her community. They named the committee Mujeres en Acción [Women in Action]. They are currently in their second cycle and have 21 members. They are a group that stands out in their neighborhood for being very active and responsible among themselves and within their community.

Señora Rosalina sells fruit for a living. She says that her job is a bit burdensome as she has to get up early everyday to buy the fruit that she is going to sell. She says that everything she does is for the well-being of her family and to bring in more income.

She is requesting a loan to buy fruit. This will allow her to increase her stock so that she can have a supply to meet her customer's demands.

In this group: Liz, Daniela, Nathalia, Remigia, Lourdes, Alicia, María, Gorgonia, Mirian, Luciana, Perla, Ada, Constancia, Perla, María, Ramona, Angelina, Hilda, Rosalina*, María*, Aurelia*
