Banco Mujer Siquirritos Group's story

Annia is the secretary of the group called Banco Mujer Siquirritos. She is a young woman, professional and a hard-worker. At 30 years old, she is married and the mother of 4 children, all minors. Her husband occasionally works as a painter and his income is very low. Because of this, Annia has always looked for ways to help improve the family's financial situation. She started a business as a street vendor and sells clothes, shoes, wallets, purses, and jewelry. This is the third loan she has asked for and the previous loans have helped her invest in capital and strengthen her business. It's important to highlight that Annia is a teacher with a Bachelor's degree for teaching both primary and secondary school. However, she has not been successful in finding steady work in the national education system. Therefore, she has realized that by managing her business well and with a lot of work, she can earn a good income. Her goals are to practice her profession and to have steady and stable work, but also to have a store that offers all of the products she currently sells. By doing this, she can improve her family's quality of life and continue supporting her husband with the household expenses. Besides Annia there are 7 other women that are also dedicated to commercial activities and services in this group.

In this group: Manuela, Annia, María, Maria, Isabel, Juana, Beatriz, Maria
