Mujeres Buscando Un Futuro Group's story

The communal bank "MUJERES BUSCANDO UN FUTURO" is one of the largest groups and has 17 members. One of them, Liceth, is 18 and works as a hostess selling beauty products. A friend of hers encouraged her to start selling to make extra income. In the seven months since she started she has acquired many customers among her friends and relatives, who are her largest buyers. She plans to use the loan to continue stocking products such as perfumes, lotions, creams and cosmetics. This will enable her to fill customers' orders. She is saving to buy a laptop for her studies; but what she aspires to most in the future is to have her own spa so she can offer all kinds of beauty services.
