Mujeres Al Poder Group's story

Mujeres al Poder Communal Bank is in its seventh cycle with 17 members. Each one of them has her own job but also helps her other colleagues to promote unity and to continue fighting for their dreams.

María is one of these 17 women. She makes a living selling all types of beverages. María says her business is growing thanks to the work she's doing and to the help of her bank. She has bigger sales on the weekend, and she's getting ready for the coming holidays because she wants to be able to have her business well stocked.

This is why she's requesting the loan to buy soda, wine, whisky, beer, and other beverages, so she can have a large supply.

They're grateful for the help they receive because their families also are being benefitted and are getting ahead.
