Mujeres Formales Group's story

Mujeres Formales [Professional Women] is taking out its fifth loan with the goal of keeping a business stable that has grown a lot since its first loan. Claire hopes to learn how to craft new clothing styles so as to provide her customers with variety and keep her revenues up. For her, the biggest challenge in her life has been providing an education for her only son. That said, he's been an inspiration to her to always keep moving ahead in her work and never give up. Her daily routine takes her in many directions; selling clothes in the mornings whether in her house or at a customer's home, and in the afternoons focussing on collecting payments from customers who owe her installments.

Hortencia and Jesús hope to buy their own materials in order to improve their sales in the back to school season when uniforms are in high demand and people always want to have them tailored to the student. This is how this group of determined women keeps on striving for their dreams.

In this group: Claire, Hortencia, Jesus
