A loan of $1,575 helped a member to buy bras and girdles.

Mujeres Empresarias Group's story

The Mujeres Empresarias communal bank is made up of eight responsible members who have been working with the Prosperidad program for eight months. Gladys is one of the members. Gladys is 54 years old and married, and has two grown children. She works selling lingerie, and has been in this business for three years. She also sells beauty products to get additional income for her home. Gladys does not have a shop, so she works through orders that her customers request from her. Thanks to these activities Gladys has been able to help her husband with the household expenses. One of her desires is to have a place where she can show her lingerie.

With the loan she received, she plans to buy bras and girdles because she has orders to fulfill. The Mujeres Empresarias communal bank thanks the lenders because they make it possible for them to make progress.
