Mujeres Valientes Group's story

The communal bank Mujeres Valientes (Courageous Women) was formed by neighbors in the city of Santaní. The members, who are trying to succeed and grow, are from fairly distant, isolated, and difficult-to-access communities.

Mirna, the group's president, says she has been striving to give her family everything it needs. She is a seamstress and skilled designer, who does excellent work for her always satisfied clients. She has applied for this loan to buy fabric, thread, buttons, and other supplies so that she can continue to provide her family with what it needs.

In this group: Mirna, Estanislaa, Liz, Delfina, Dianez, Isidora, Presentacion, Noelia, Lidia, Liliana, Maria, Noelia, Saria*, Dionisia*
