Mujeres Solidarias Group's story

Mujeres Solidarias is participating in a poverty elimination survey so the members will know their current individual situations. Based on that, they'll be able to work and improve their incomes and their living conditions. One of the members is Teresa, who in the last survey was found to be in the first level of poverty, that is to say, scarce financial resources. She reports that the work she does is sewing. Through her line of work she helps her family and provides them with everything they need. There's also the noteworthy work done by the loan officers, who provide training and checking follow-ups on a permanent basis. In one way or another, these follow-ups require and at the same time encourage the women to fight in order to overcome poverty. Teresa requests this loan so she can purchase fabric, zippers for trousers, and thread of various colors. This will help her achieve her business plan, which will help her increase her profits.
