Mujeres Alegres Group's story

Ana’s married and is 47-years-old; she never went to school. She has two children who don’t attend school yet. She works sewing t-shirts. She started this work as an employee with a neighbor and to date has 20 years’ experience. She has her husband’s support; he does the same kind of work.

She organized a group to request a loan to invest in the purchase of fabric and thread in various types and colors and another machine. She hopes in future to have her own assembly shop and also to buy some domestic animals because she’s thinking about having a farm.
