Grupo Solidario Mujeres De Lucha Group's story

Bertilia is 48 years old, has a husband and a son, and has been selling grocery items and sewing as her primary business activities for more than 6 years. Bertilia is requesting support in order to purchase products such as sugar, butter, soap, sodas, meat, toilet paper, corn, beans and fabric to make skirts, shirts and pants for her customers. Her business is located in her home, and the requested loan will contribute to Bertilia improving her business and as a result having better earnings to cover household costs and being more able to give a better quality of life to her family, which is important to her. One of Bertilia's dreams is to have one of the best grocery stores in the area.

The rest of the group consists of Mirta, who earns a living selling groceries as well and Elvira who sells cookies, bread, chicken enchiladas and other food items.
