A loan of $5,675 helped a member to buy winter clothing articles to sell.

Mujeres Activas Group's story

The Mujeres Activas group is in its fifth loan cycle of the women's communal bank program, where all promised to work and to help each other to move forward. They are doing the poverty elimination survey, in which three of the 19 women find themselves below the poverty line. Each one of them will receive corresponding training to be able to improve their living conditions.

One of them is Sonia, who works selling clothes on the street. She says that because of the problems she faces daily, she is fighting and improving every day.

She is applying for this loan to be able to stock up with a good quantity of winter clothing, as it is getting colder and she wants to be able to give her loved ones everything so that they can have a decent life.

In this group: Daniela, Sonia, Estela, Eusebia, Blasia, Gloria, Fatima, Virginia, Hilda, Laura, Elsira, Mariela, Estelbina, Rosa, Lidia, Sintia, Andrea*, Ana*, Daisy*
