Mujeres Activas Group's story

This group is called "Mujeres Activas" (Active Women in English) as all of these women are very active and have come together in the hope of growing, of working and of helping their families. This is their sixteenth loan cycle as part of the women's committee programme and the members are also undergoing the poverty elimination survey in order to improve their living conditions.

One member of this group is Daniela. She saw that this group would be a huge opportunity and so decided to join. In becoming part of the group, Daniela hopes to work and improve not just her financial situation, but her life in general as well. Daniela makes a living as a dressmaker, a job that she carries out with great determination. She has good customers who always bring her orders.

Today Daniela is applying for a loan to buy material, threads, glue and other supplies. These items will help her in her business and Daniela will be able to continue working.

In this group: Antonia, Antoliana, Katherina, Yenifer, Ramona, Candida, Martha, Graciela, Daniela, Juana, Wilma, Gladys, Librada, Maria, Luisa
