Mujeres Hacendosas Group's story

The Mujeres Hacendosas ("Hardworking Women") group is in its eleventh cycle. Thanks to the efforts of all of its members and to the help and training given by the foundation, as well as the support of the consultants, they were able to improve their finances. Today, none of the members are below the poverty line.

One of the members is Silvina, who acts as the group's treasurer. In her last survey, she came out with a result in the third level, or green on the program scale. However, she still continues to work tirelessly day after day to overcome all kinds of obstacles. It should be mentioned that she is a widow, and through her effort and continuous work, as well as applying the vital behaviors of a successful woman, she has managed to have all of her children study. Today, some of them are already professionals while some continue with their respective degrees.

Silvina has applied for this loan to buy meat, drinks, canned goods, milk, and other goods for her grocery store. She has a well-stocked business and these products will help her to firm up her business plan, which in turn will help her to increase her earnings and thus improve the quality of life of her family members.

In this group: Ana, María, Silvina, Inocencia, Aureliana, Petrona, Celsa, Carmen, Rosa, Edelmira, Irene, Regina, Teresita, Maria, Sinthia, Veronica*, Gregoria*, Shyrley*
