Mujeres Activas Group's story

The Mujeres Activas (Active Women) group are in cycle 2 of the program of the women's committee. Each one is doing a survey to eliminate poverty, which allows them to understand the situation of each woman, of whom 9 are below the poverty line, which is to say, very low income. For this reason, these women are working twice as hard to improve.

One of these woman is Maria, who is a tailor. She has earned her living doing this for a while, and is creating very good customers for herself. Her work is always of good quality, and her customers like this. She wants to continue growing and thus help her family.

She is asking for a loan to buy fabric, thread, rubber and more, to be able to continue with her work and meet customer orders. She is grateful for this growth opportunity that she and her family are receiving.

In this group: Maria, Elza, Maria, Mirtha, Nilda, Zulma, Agripina, Catalina, Lidia, Zulma, Sandra, Maria, Rosana, Maria, Balbina
