A loan of $4,275 helped a member to buy merchandise for the Christmas season.

Mujeres Activas Group's story

Hello! The group in the photo is from “MUJERES ACTIVAS,” an association that has already been in existence for more than 10 years and currently has 6 very enterprising and dynamic members (Mrs. Sofía is not able to attend the day of the loan disbursement due to health reasons).

One of the women is Mrs. Jacinta (the woman in the photo wearing the long-sleeved blue polo with golden applique). Jacinta is the group’s treasurer and a very reliable person. She is 52 years old and has 2 adult children and 2 children under her guardianship. Jacinta is a merchant who has her own store, which is how she generates income for her family. The present loan is to buy merchandise for the Christmas season to be able to offer variety in her products. Aside from this activity, she also rents part of her home, which generates extra monthly income for her.

The members of “MUJERES ACTIVAS,” especially Jacinta, say goodbye and thank you to all the people that support their cause.

In this group: Jacinta, Yina, Sofia*, Zonia, Nimia, Fortunata
