Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The Mujeres Luchadoras Group is participating in the poverty elimination survey. Six of these women have red indicators because they have low incomes, but they should continue to work hard. One of the members of this group is Matilde. During the last survey, she was at the second level on the poverty scale, which is to say that she has a medium income. Through her effort, her continuous work, and applying the behavior of a successful woman, she is improving her state of poverty. Among the work she does, she says that she sells jewelry. The work of the advisors should also be highlighted. They continuously follow up with training and checks, which both demand and encourage these women to fight to overcome poverty. Matilde is applying for a loan to buy clothing to sell, which will help her to have something new to complement her jewelry business. All of the members are grateful for the opportunity they are being given.

In this group: Nilda, Rosalía, Salvadora, Ramona, Lucia, Matilde, Isabel, Isabel, Mercedes, Francisca, Zulma, Artemia, Noelia, Alicia, María, María, Teodora
