Madres Trabajadoras Group's story

The group called “Madres Trabajadoras” (Working Mothers) is in its tenth loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. The members have taken a poverty elimination survey so that each of them could become familiar with their individual situations. Thanks to the results, it was discovered that two of the women are at a very low income level.

One member who is worthy of mention is Sra. Maria, the group president. She is an outstanding individual who is in charge of motivating her fellow group members to move forward and improve each day. Maria spends her time selling empanadas of all kinds and is doing very well. She has a very good customer base.

Maria is requesting a loan in order to buy supplies needed to continue making empanadas such as meat, vegetables, condiments, and other ingredients. This will allow her to continue her sales and grow her income.

In this group: Maria, Rufina, Claudia, Juana, Isidora, Mirta, Juliana, Nilsa, Emilce, Emilia, Elva, Maria, Nancy, Hiluminada, Gladys, Maria, Claudia, Beatriz, Carmen, Maria*
