Mujeres Alegres Group's story

The group called “Mujeres Alegres” (Cheerful Women) is in its fourth loan cycle with the Women’s Committee Program. All of the members work and help one another get ahead. They have taken a poverty elimination survey so that they can become familiar with each of their situations. This also helps them to become stable in their work.

One of the members is Sra. Fabiola, who sells food. She says that she is very good at what she does and is doing well as indicated by her good sales. Fabiola considers herself to be a hardworking woman who strives to improve and provide help to her family. Today she is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of supplies for preparing the dishes that she sells. These items include meat, vegetables, condiments, and other products.

Fabiola is grateful for the opportunity she has received since it will be of great help and allow her to continue investing in her business plans.

In this group: Gricelda, Ignacia, Gestrudis, Josefa, Lilian, Shierley, Nidia, Noelia, Lucina, Cynthia, Tomasa, Fabiola, Ana, Maria, Elisa, Catalina*, Lucy*
