Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The communal bank "Mujeres Emprendedoras" (Entrepreneurial Women) is in its third loan cycle in the program for entrepreneurial women, where each one strives to advance. They are from a very remote area where access is a little difficult and there is little communication.

One of the members is Señora Wilma, who has a store where she works every day from a very early hour. She comments that it is going very well for her in her store, since she has many good customers and good sales, since she always gives her customers very good attention. Wilma and her companions strive and work not only to grow in their microenterprises but they also want to help their community grow and improve. She is applying for the loan to be able to invest it in the purchase of supplies such as beverages, milk, vegetables, meat, and other items to be able to continue stocking her store
