Banco Mujer Mujeres Triunfadoras Group's story

Viviana is a 27-year-old woman; she is married and the mother of two children. She lives in a rural community, but on the main road. She is very hardworking and dedicated to her family. Her husband works as a chauffeur and earns minimum wage. Because of that, her main business is pastry-making and going out into her community to sell without neglecting her family. Her plan is to buy raw materials like flour, fruit, and other things to make her pastries and also chickens and pigs to raise and later sell in order to help out with the family expenses, as one of her children is in primary school and she provides for his school expenses from her income. She has several businesses so that when her pastry-making business is slow she always has income to help her family and be able to meet her third financial obligation with the Foundation. She has the help of one son and her husband, who care for the animals during their free time. Her goal is to better herself, grow, and improve living conditions for herself and for her family.

Viviana, Rosa, Doris, Marcia, Emilce, and Marjorie are the six members who make up Banco Mujer and they are going to invest in different businesses, such as pastry making and pig and chicken raising.

In this group: Mayra, Rosa, Emilce, Marcia, Marjorie, Doris
