Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

Short description of the group and then of one of the members.

The Mujeres Emprendedoras communal bank is in its fifth cycle in the women’s committee program. It is in the city of Concepción, an area that is pretty far from the capital of the country. It is in constant growth.

Florentina is one of the members. She is from an area that is far from the center, the same as the city where she works as a teacher and nurse. In the evenings she makes food to sell in front of her house. It is through these jobs that she struggles to be able to give her family everything that they need day to day.

She hopes that as time passes, and with the help of all of the people in her area and her colleagues, they will be able to improve their environment.

Florentina requests this loan to be able to buy supplies in order to continue with her food sales. She wants to buy vegetables, meat, condiments, and the rest. This way she will also be able to give her customers they delicacies that she prepares.

In this group: Ubalda, Maria, Maria, Lilian, Natalia, Maria, Mirna, Florentina, Olga, Maria, Patrocinia, Marciana, Lucia, Diana, Maria, Manuela, Deisy*
