Mujeres Triunfadoras Group's story

The communal bank “Mujeres Triunfadoras” (Triumphant Women) is made up of dynamic and enterprising people who work hard every day to get ahead. Their only goal is to safe guard their family's well-being. The communal bank is made up of ten members. This case is about Nancy, who is 22-years old, married and has one son. She currently makes her living selling clothing, toys and cosmetics in a market stall. This business emerged when she saw that her husband's income wasn't enough to cover the household expenses. Nancy will use this last part of the group's loan to purchase clothing, like pants, t-shirts, jackets and other items. Buying her own sales stall is Nancy's greatest desire, as the one she sells from now is rented. The communal bank “Mujeres Triunfadoras” is grateful for the loan they have been given. Nancy is in the back row, second from the left and wearing a turquoise shirt.
