Mujeres Generosas Group's story

This lending group started thanks to Maria - she contacted her neighbors and friends to form a committee in their area. The group is named "Mujeres Generosas" and they are in their 15th cycle and have 18 members. This group stands out in their neighborhood because it is very united and responsible. They all want to get ahead and help their families.

One of the members is Ofelia, who makes all types of garments. She says that she always has plenty of work and is always full with orders. She says she is a hardworking woman who makes sacrifices to fight for her family's well-being.

She asks for a loan to buy fabric, threads, buttons, zippers and other products to stock her workshop.

In this group: Ofelia Francisca, Sonia, Claudia, Blanca, Jovita, Felicita, María, Fidelina, Lucía, Asteria, Mirian, Alicia, Graciela, Myrian, Adolfina, Felipa, Ninfa*, Sonia*
