Emprendedoras Group's story

17 women make up the group called "Emprendedoras" where their efforts and struggles have brought them to the ninth cycle with this program committee. They are also working on a survey on the elimination of poverty as a way to know the life situation of each woman and thus be able to improve their lives.

One of the members is Maria who demonstrated a poverty level within the third class during her last survey. This means that through efforts, steady work, and applying vital behaviors of a successful woman, she can improve her poverty situation. Similarly, she is aware that work and efforts should be done in a continuous and permanent manner to ultimately be success and provide a better life for her family.

Her job includes selling cosmetics. The consultant work should also be noted. They continuously monitor training and verification that somehow requires and also encourages the women to fight to escape poverty. Maria is applying for this loan to buy cosmetics from various brands. This will help her to finalize her business plan and thus improve her income.

In this group: Eugenia, Maria, Maria, Margarita, Juana, Felicia, Mirian, Irene, Gladys, Albina, Zully, Gisselle, Lourdes, Natalia, Catalina, Liliana, Mirian
