A loan of $3,600 helped a member to purchase cosmetics to sell.


Mujeres En Acción Group's story

The Women in Action (Mujeres en Acción) communal bank was formed when the advisor promoted the program to neighbors and friends in the town of Itá. The group consists of 14 ladies who still work with the same enthusiasm as when they first began. They are already in their 5th cycle. They work together and are very comfortable participating in the program.

One of the members of this group is Mari who sells all kinds of cosmetics of all brands. She started with a few clients, and thanks to her good skills as a saleswoman, her business has been growing and improving every day.

Mari wants to keep working and is therefore requesting this loan because she wants to buy more cosmetics so that she can always be well stocked for her customers.

In this group: Matilde , Mirna , Digna , Nelida , Mari , Mirian , Yohana , Damiana , Ruth , Mariela , Hilda , Cinthia , Sandra
