Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

This group is called 'Mujeres Emprendedoras' (Entrepreneurial Women), and they are now in the 2nd cycle of the women's committee program. These ladies all work hard to succeed in life, to grow together and to help their families. They are currently carrying out a poverty elimination survey, which records the income level of each member.

Gladys is a member of this group. She works in food sales and has a small pantry in her home, which is filled with neighbors and people from nearby areas. She always tries to maintain a well-stocked business so that her customers are satisfied. Gladys' pantry is the livelihood of her family and her business helps them to move forward in life.

Gladys has applied for this loan to purchase fruit, vegetables, meat, chicken, bulk materials and other supplies in order to continue with her sales and to invest in her business plan.

In this group: Rosa, Maura, Katherine, Paulina, María, Eunice, Delia, Pabla, Gladys, Diana, Carmen, Basílica, Miriam, Emilia, Ilsie*, Cynthia*, Lorena*
