A loan of $1,150 helped a member to improve her house.

Mujeres Triunfadoras Group's story

The new communal bank "Mujeres Triunfadoras" (triumphant women) consists of 7 women who are enthusiastic about beginning to work with the Prosperity Program. Mirhta is the secretary of the group. She is 29 years old and is separated, with one son who is still a dependent. Mirhta has worked as a craftsperson in silver for more than two years. This business arose thanks to a relative who persuaded her to pursue her own business. The money that she receives is a great help since she can continue supporting her son with his education and in this way improve his quality of life. Mirhta's wish is to install in her home a handicraft studio where she can do her work. At this time she is applying for the loan to improve her house (painted). The communal bank "Mujeres Triunfadoras" is grateful for the loans offered since they make their progress possible.

In this group: Ruth Mirhta, Vilma Tomaza, Cicely Delphine, Mercedes, Angelica Marcelina, Florinda, Elizabeth Emperatriz
