Mujeres Valientes Group's story

The “Mujeres Valientes” (Brave Women) communal bank is composed of three women from the community of Pujili. They are enterprising women seeking ways to get ahead and help their families economically; each one tries to reach her dream by means of daily work and effort.

This group’s president is Omayra, 22. She has two small children she loves and strives daily to move them forward and give them everything they need. Omayra defines herself as a humble person filled with Christian values and very hardworking; these are the qualities that have made Omayra a woman who is worthy of admiration and respect from her family and her entire community.

The loan Omayra asked FODEMI for is to buy two young cows to raise and in time produce milk because Omayra works raising cattle and wants to increase her small business of raising animals. Omayra’s dream is to continue working in her business and continue to grow more every day and to be able to give her children a good education thus improving her entire family’s quality of life.

In this group: Omayra, Eugenia , Carmita
