Luchadoras Group's story

“Luchadoras” (Battlers) is a group formed by 13 women from the city of Mariano Roque Alonso. They are very hard-working and struggling people who always put forth maximum effort to be able to help their families. The members want to be able to grow, not only economically, but also personally, in order to become better people and better human beings.
