Emprendedoras De Mangoty Group's story

'Emprendedoras de Mangoty', a group of enterprising women, is in its first cycle with the Committee of Women Entrepreneurs Program. They all work and help each other to get along. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, which shows two members are below the poverty line, striving to improve each day.

One of the members is Cynthia who struggles to get ahead by selling vegetables. She says that at the beginning she started with very little, but with her work and the support of her family it started to grow.

She is asking for this loan to be able to buy fresh vegetables to sell. This way she can continue striving to improve her living conditions and those of her family.

In this group: Liz, Isabel, Noelia, Nancy, Maria, Mirna, Eulalia, Angelica, Debelen, Nidia, Andrea, Norma, Luz, Lidia, Cynthia*, Lidia*, Liz*
