Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The "Mujeres Trabajadoras" [Working Women] group are all from the city of San Lorenzo. They are very united and strong as well as mature, even though they began recently, and they already have experience. They hope to be able to get ahead through working all together.

Mabel, the president, works as a seamstress. She says that she always has a lot of work because her sewing is very good. She is well known in her neighborhood thanks to her good prices. Thanks to her work, she is getting ahead and helping her family to get ahead, too.

Mabel is requesting the loan to purchase thread, fabric, elastic, and other supplies so that she will be able to continue fulfilling orders that she has.

In this group: Mabel Sicilia, Lourdes , Rossana , Buenavetura , Simona , Mirtha , Octaciana , Emilia , Lidia , Claudia , Dionicia , Maura , Edith , Nora , Hermelinda
