Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

Mujeres Luchadores is made up of 15 women from the city of Luque. They got their name because the women are fighters [luchadores] who work hard to get ahead and make progress. The group is in its 15th lending cycle with the program and it's thanks to their work that they move forward.

One group member, Myrian, is a food seller. She is 46 years old, separated, and has 6 children. She says that thanks to her work she has helped her kids and is educating them. She is an example of struggle and sacrifice.

She asks for a loan to buy meats, condiments, vegetables and other ingredients to keep selling her food, because it's the only way she has to help her children.

In this group: Guillerma, Myrian, Juanita, Paola, Mirian, Mirna, Rogelina, Candelaria, Petrona, Elsi, Gladiz, Cynthia, Fatima, Martha, Antonia*
