Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

Mujeres Trabajadoras is in its first cycle of the committee’s program. It has 19 members currently. It is a group that among its members practices solidarity, mutual help, and responsibility. All of them are very hard-working and tenacious.

One of the stories worthy of highlighting is that of Basilica, who is 45 years old. She has made a living selling clothes for many years throughout the city, and with this activity she was able to bring her family out ahead since she has a well-formed customer base. She is thankful for the opportunity that she is receiving to be able to continue improving and fighting for the wellbeing of her family.

She is requesting this loan to be able to invest in the purchase of a variety of items, such as jeans, t-shirts, shirts, pants, and more, and so continue expanding her work and also be able to improve her income.

In this group: Basilica, Justina, Carmen, Crescencia, Lucia, Justa, Sandra, Juliana, Martina, Alma, Lourdes, Amada, Amada, Felicita, Andrea, Leoncia, María*, Mirtha*, María*
