Emprendedoras Del Valle El Triunfo Group's story

The communal bank “Emprendedoras del Valle el Triunfo” comprises eight enterprising, business-savvy women. Gumercinda, 43, belongs to the group and is the single mother of three children. She is an entrepreneur, who has worked hard to be successful. She sells natural medicines from a small area in her house. This is the only income she and her family have. She will use the loan to buy natural products to sell so that she can pay for her children's education.
