Mujeres Activas Group's story

“Mujeres Activas” is the name of this new group, which is in its first loan cycle as part of the programme run by the women's committee. The main goal decided by the committee was growth for every woman, not only economic growth but also personal growth.

One of the women is Ana, who sells meals as a street trader. She does this work to fight for her family and to be able to buy them what they need so they don't have to do without. Ana's dream for the future is to increase her production and to fight for a better future for her children, and this is why she is redoubling her efforts in pursuit of her dream.

She is asking for this loan because she wants to buy ingredients for her meals such as vegetables, condiments, garden produce and baked goods. She is grateful for this opportunity that is offered to her.

In this group: Gladys, Benita, Editha, Liz, Maria, Susana, Genara, Felicita, Gladys, Justa, Mary, Asuncion, Ana, Valeria, Ambrosia, Odulia, Porfiria*
