Mujeres Activas Group's story

Mujeres Activas [Active Women] is in its second cycle of the women's communal bank program. They are also part of the poverty elimination program, where they all want to improve their quality of life and thus be able to help their families. One of the members is Anunciacion, who on her last survey showed a level one level of poverty, which means she has a low income. However, she works to be able to grow and improve her life. She has a store which, with a lot of effort and sacrifice, she was able to open, and now she has a very good clientele. Thanks to her work and determination every day, she was able to improve her quality of life substantially. Today she requests this loan to spend on supplies for her store, such as greens, fruit, meat, vegetables, etc. She is thankful that she and the other women have this opportunity.
