14 De Agosto Group's story

14 de Agosto is the name of a good group of women which was founded in the city of Itá thanks to Zolia, the current President, who contacted the advisor at a weekly meeting she had in the area, to find out how the Comité de Mujeres Emprendedoras (Enterprising Women Committee) worked. When she learned about the program, she managed to bring 21 women together. They support each other and are now working collectively on their third cycle within the program.

Zoila always tries to motivate her fellow members to keep fighting for their goals and better themselves. She is a seamstress and tells us that the jobs she receives always keep her very busy, because she gets a lot of them. That is why she is requesting a loan, because she wants to purchase fabric and thread as well as buttons and zippers so that she can fill all of the orders she has. She is thankful for the help she and her friends are receiving.

In this group: Zoila Estefania, Blanca, Adriana, Alejandra, Maria, Juana, Feliciana, Maria, Lida, Fabiana, Blanca, Maria, Clara, Nida, Delfina, Rosa, Maria, Rossana, Zunilda, Candida, Felicita
