Banco Mujer Las Triunfadoras Group's story

Patricia is one member of the women's communal bank named "Las Triunfadoras". She is 38 years old, divorced and the head of her household. Patricia has two daughters: the youngest is in high school while the eldest is doing a course to learn a profession and to be able to help her mother. Patricia is a very brave and hard-working woman. She is a stylist and looks after her customers in a small place at her home. She also visits customers at their home to do hair cuts, dyes and all sorts of hair treatments. This is Patricia's second loan; she will invest it in buying supplies for her work, such as dyes, keratins, care treatments and more.

This work is Patricia's only source of income for her family. As a result, this investment is vital for strengthening her business and improving Patricia and her daughters' quality of life. Alongside Patricia, this group has three other members who will invest in their businesses and artisan work.

In this group: Irma, Cynthia, Patricia, Maria
