Mujeres Activas Group's story

A group of women with inicitiave and good proposals when it comes to having a business nowadays, are the women of the group called Active Women which is composed of six members. It started nine years ago. These are women who were able to suceed in spite of any obstacles that came their way. Proof of that is Mrs. Jacinta president of the group Active Women. She is 52 years old, has a partner, and has four grown-up children. Every day she works hard in the grocery store that has provided an income for more than seven years. She started this business because she did not have enough money to cover household expenditures. She built a grocery store in her home and day by day spends more hours of her free time selling cosmetics. She will use the loan to buy groceries. Mrs. Jacinta is only one of 6 members who work hard and with enthusiasm for their families' well-being.

In this group: Jacinta, Fortunata Felicia*, Sofia Alvina, Yina Edith, Zonia Cesaria, Nimia
