Banco Mujer Fuentes De Vida Group's story

Matilde Agüero is the treasurer of Banco Mujer Fuentes de Vida (Sources of Life Women's Bank). She is a very hard-working woman who is 26 years old and has two small children. She is a single mother and the head of household. This business woman has a lot of experience selling clothing and shoes and it is her business that allows her to provide for her children. She and her group have received three previous loans, and for Matilde, it is this financing that has given her the opportunity to start her business, consolidate it, and thus, generate the income necessary to improve her living conditions. She is going to invest this loan in purchasing merchandise such as clothing and shoes for women and children, as well as replenish her line of men's clothing since Father's Day is approaching. In addition, she will fulfill the orders that her customers make.

Matilde's group is made up of three other members who are going to invest in their farming businesses.

In this group: Maria Isabel, Marcela, Matilde, Ninive
