Banco Mujer Fuentes De Vida Group's story

Doña Lucia is a 68 year old woman, married, and now only lives with her husband. Her age is not an impediment from work. She is a retailer. She has a small grocery store where she sells groceries, soda, and candy. With the help of her husband they both work in the her small micro-business. The income generated from this work is the only income they count on for cover all the family expenses. This is the second credit that she is requesting and previously it had allowed her to condition the corridor of her house to begin the sale of some products. This time they are going to invest in more merchandise to stock the grocery store, offering better services and variety of products.
Along with Doña Lucia are 3 other women in the group who will invest in commercial activities and poultry farming.

In this group: Lucia, Maria Isabel, Ana Talia, Raquel
