Mujeres Activas Group's story

The Mujeres Activas Group is in its first loan cycle with the Comite de Mujeres. As well, all the women are part of the elimination of poverty program. They want to improve their lives and make progress.

One of the members is Sra. Genera who in her last survey showed a level 1 poverty level which means that she has little income but understands that through effort and steady work she will be able to improve her situation. Genera has a hairdressing salon and also sells costume jewelry in her business. She is a hardworking, enterprising person who wants to get ahead and improve her poor economic situation.

She is seeking a loan to buy hairdressing supplies such as dyes, shampoo, rinses etc. so she can continue with her job and try to improve every day.
