Banco Mujer Las Triunfadoras Group's story

This group has a long career path. They have received several loans and are known for their punctuality and their commitment to the internal regulations of Banco Mujer. They keep on working enthusiastically, wanting to help their families. They have established themselves as small businesswomen and they plan to keep moving forward with their enterprises. The group is made up of six members who are going to invest in commercial and small-business activities.

The president of this group is Ellisenia, 33, a good leader who has been able to manage the group and influence her colleagues in the best way. She lives in a common-law relationship and has two small daughters. Both she and her companion work on their own. The lack of work led them to develop this business, so they could support their household.

She has a lot of character and entrepreneurial vision. In addition to being a merchant for many years, two years ago she started a business at home selling food. People order a certain number of lunches, which she prepares and then goes out to deliver. She also makes homemade bread and arepas [corn cakes], which sell very well, including to a bread truck.

This new investment will be to buy a small motorcycle to facilitate delivering the meals.

Ellisenia has very defined goals and objectives, including finishing her college education in law and becoming a lawyer. She also wants to have a small restaurant one day.

In this group: Ellisenia, Luz Mery, Georgeana, Luz, Cristina, Nuria
