Banco Mujer El Alba Group's story

Jeisel is 21 years old; she is a single mother with a five-year-old son. She lives alone with her son in her own home and she has been a storekeeper for some time now. She is a very hardworking woman who is committed to her group, Banco Mujer El Alba, where she acts as treasurer.

She has taken out two loans with Fundación Mujer, but this is her first loan with Banco Mujer El Alba and she will use the loan to buy merchandise, such as clothing, sandals, and perfumes. She is a very good salesperson and the income she makes at her business is what has allowed her to get ahead. In spite of the obstacles she has faced, such as lack of investment money, among other situations, she has made it her goal to improve her quality of life, to send her son to school, and to keep studying. Her dream is to be able to attend a university and she is working hard to achieve it.

There are six other members besides Jeisel, who work in agriculture and livestock and commerce.

In this group: Ivannia, Jeisel , Gabriela, Rosalia, Maria , Berta , Saray
