Mujeres Activas Group's story

This communal bank is called "Mujeres Activas" (Active Women), because each member of the group is seeking to make progress and improve their standard of living. This bank is in its 4th loan cycle, and has 20 members. Each member has their own business activity, and they are a very united and responsible group in which the members support each other.

Gladis is a very hardworking and enterprising woman who has a business selling all kinds of garments and jewelry. She comments that she sells her products to all of her neighbors, and also to other customers whom she managed to attract due to the good quality of her products. Her wish is to continue to grow her business so that she can have a better income.
