Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

This committee was formed thanks to one of the members who became aware of the foundation's programs and organized her friends and invited them to be part of the Comite D. Mujeres Emprendedoras [Committee of Enterprising Women]. They are working well and want to continue with their project.

Gladys works as a seamstress. She has been married to Jorge, a Registrar for the justice department, for 8 years. They have 2 children and she says that the children are their reason for being. For them they work day and night, so they can give them a better future than what they had.

Gladys asks for a loan to buy materials for her sewing work like fabrics, thread, zippers, buttons and other things. Her goal is to increase the size of her workshop insiD. her home so that she can keep growing.
