Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

This group of enterprising women who bear the name "Mujeres Trabajadoras" (Hard-working Women), is in the first loan cycle of the women's communal bank program. They are very eager to grow and give their families everything they need. One of the stories worth highlighting is that of Del Rosaria, who is 54, and has been selling hammocks and other crafts for several years now. Through this work she is able to support her family and give them everything they need, so that they don't have to experience any privations such as those she had to experience. She is applying for this loan in order to buy thread, needles, and other supplies so that she can continue making her hammocks and other crafts. She is grateful for the help that she and her friends are receiving, as it will allow each of them to grow in their respective businesses.

In this group: Maria, Maria, Gloria, Celia, Elsa, Tomasa, Marina, Maria, Nelida, Tomasa, Del Rosaria, Librada, Delfina
