Damas Del Barrio San Antonio Group's story

The group called Damas del Barrio San Antonio, is in its eighth cycle of the program of Comité de Mujeres, where all of them work and support getting ahead. They are very competent women who strive to to do well and to grow in the job that each one does.

Maria, one of the members, says that she is dedicated to buying and selling, as well as recyclables, such as plastic, cardboard, aluminum and more. Through this work Maria gives her family what they need. She is happy with what she does as it is an honest job and she does not have to do anything to be ashamed of.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy cardboard, aluminum, plastic and more so she can resell them and thus make a greater profit. She is grateful for the opportunity that she and her companions are receiving.

In this group: Rocio, Zulma, Lucia, Maria, Juana, Liz, Deolinda, Antoliana, Rosa, Teresa, Maria, Yolanda, Maria, Ana, Liz, Lidia, Edith, Felipa*
