Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

“Mujeres Luchadoras” (Women Fighters) is the name of this group that consists of 17 women from the city of Luque. They are currently in their 12th loan cycle. This committee was formed as a result of another committee from the same city who urged their neighbors to form their own committee so that they could invest in their businesses and generate good income.

Sra. Mirna sells beverages in order to cover the expenses related to maintaining her household. She has become well-known in the neighborhood since she already has many customers. Mirna says that she has more demand on the weekends, which is why she would like to increase her inventory. She dreams of someday expanding her business so that she will have more space to store her merchandise.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy beer, whisky, energy drinks, wine, and other beverages for eventual resale.

In this group: Mirian, Myrian, Mirian, Juanita, Lucia, Paola, Mirian, Myrian, Mirna, Ester, Rogelina, Flora, Mariam, Elizabeth, Elsi*, Gloria*, Shirley*
