Mujeres Independientes Group's story

This group of enterprising women, whose group bears the name "Mujeres Independientes," is in its second loan cycle of the communal bank program and currently has 22 members. It is a group noted for being supportive and very energetic, and they undertake shared group activities. The greater part of its members have businesses that involve sales.

One of the stories worth highlighting is that of Gladys, 36. She has been buying and selling various products for several years. She sells her products throughout the Yaguarón area. This activity is carried on by all members of the family. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving to be able to grow. She is requesting this loan so that she can buy foodstuffs, soap, cooking oil, and other items. This way she can continue selling.
