A loan of $3,800 helped a member to buy fruit.

Mujeres Activas Group's story

Manuela is 49 years old and married. She didn't have the opportunity to study, but she has 7 children and 2 of them are studying.

She makes a living in buying and selling fruits for export. She started this business with the help of her husband and has 10 years of experience to date. She counts on the support of her husband, who is dedicated to the business.

She decided to organize a group and apply for a loan that she will use to expand her working capital. She will buy more fruits to supply sales. She hopes in the future to have a large stall in the municipal market.

The other members of the group make a living in the elaboration of textiles and in livestock activities. One member is missing from the photo, because she could not be there when the photo was taken.
