4 Boca Group's story

The group called "4 boca" or "4 mouths" is in its first cycle of the program of "Comité de mujeres" or "Women's committee." This group is composed of hard-working indigenous women. They are doing the survey related to elimination of poverty (some of the women find themselves living in poverty, and others are on the edge of poverty, that is to say their incomes are very low or medium).

Matilde is a nurse in the "Colonia 1° de marzo" or "March 1st neighborhood", and she is the President of the communal bank and is a very hard worker. She formed the group in order to be able to work together and get ahead. She is using this loan in order to dedicate herself to raising animals since she wants to buy yard animals and in that way help her family through her work.

They are thankful for this opportunity that they are receiving, which will permit them to keep growing.

In this group: Matilde, Felisa, Mirian, Ubaldina, María, Mariana, Míguela, Paublina, Mirian, Alicia, Alicia, Francisca, Marta
