Mujeres Trabajadoas Group's story

"Mujeres trabajadoras" (Hard-working Women), is the communal bank in the city of Villa Elisa, made up of 12 women. The group bears this name, as the members are very hard-working women, who work hard day after day to give the best to their families, and that way avoid their having to suffer hardship.

Eliodora is a very self-sacrificing and hard-working individual. She tells us that she recycles all types of products, including cardboard, plastic items, metals, and other types of materials. She says that this is very hard work, as she goes through the streets gathering these materials, and does this every day.

She is very proud of what she does, as it is decent and honest work. She is applying for the loan in order to buy plastic items and cardboard in quantity, which she will resell. That way she will have a bit more income, enabling her to continue supporting her family.

In this group: Maria Beatriz, Eliodora , Maria , Lucia , Guillermina , Eteria , Dejesus , Maura , Zulma , Bernarda , Victoria , Teresa
