Mujeres En Progreso Group's story

The group called "Mujeres en Progreso" (Women in Progress) is in its 11th loan cycle. The group has participated in a survey related to the elimination of poverty, and the results of the survey found that one of the group members, Maria, falls below the poverty line. Despite her meager income, Maria works very hard to grow and improve her condition day by day.

Maria works selling clothing and footwear, and she is trying to improve her economic situation through her hard work and dedication. Additionally, the trainings she has received as part of the microfinance lending group she belongs to have been very helpful for her as she applies what she has learned to her business.

At this time, Maria is asking for a loan in order to buy clothing and footwear of the season, which will help her to finalize her business plan and improve her earnings.

In this group: De La Paz, Clementina, Ana, Nimia, Felicia, Edith, Elena, Juana, Nilce, Mariela, Gloria, Lina, Maria, Isabel, Maria*
