Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The communal bank "Mujeres Trabajadoras" was formed by several neighbors of the community called Union. All of the members are involved in independent businesses, but they also get together for activities that foster team spirit. They are very hard-working, determined women. One of the members is Mrs. Ursulina who has a well-stocked bookstore that allows her to work and make enough income to support her family. She says sales are always good because throughout the year people are always buying something, and that generates good profits. Her goal is to keeping growing and continue helping her family. She is requesting a loan to buy notebooks, books, pencils, brushes and other supplies to restock her store for when school begins.
