Mujeres Valientes Group's story

Andresa contacted her neighbors and friends in her area to form the committee, Mujeres Valientes (Brave Women). The members have their own businesses but also do things as a group and this is their third loan cycle. The group has 19 members and is known in the neighborhood as being very supportive, united and responsible with each other. They also have a great entrepreneurial and determined spirit. One of the members is Claudelina who sells all types of clothing. She says that she has been able to help her family and give them what they need to have a life without deprivations because of her business. Her goal is to be able to continue developing as a micro entrepreneur and helping her family. For these reasons she is requesting the loan; she wants to buy more clothing to stock her business and to have more variety to offer her customers.
