A loan of $5,950 helped a member to buy fish for selling on.

Mujeres Vicotriosas Group's story

The "Mujeres Victoriosas" group is on its 16th loan cycle as part of the women's committee programme, where everybody works and helps each other to get ahead. This is a large group and everybody is putting in the effort so that each member can get ahead. The members are undertaking the poverty elimination survey so that we can ascertain each member's circumstances.

One member of the group is Luciana who, with a lot of effort and thanks to her fish sales, is moving ahead in life. Luciana has always worked as she is aware that this is the only way she can grow and "be someone". Her biggest inspiration is her family and it is for them that she fights.

Luciana is applying for this loan in order to buy fish to sell. She can then continue to invest in her business.

In this group: Maria, Maria, Claudia, Fermina, Sandra, Maria, Gabriela, Aurea, Blanca, Rosana, Liz, Luciana, Emilia, Beatriz, Flora, Pabla, Ana, Estelvina*, Norma*, Lisa*, Sonia*
