Mujeres Luchadoras Group's story

The “Mujeres Luchadores” [Striving Women] is a group where each one is striving for their family and their loved ones. They are using the poverty elimination survey, which allows the women to become familiar with the financial situation of each member of the group.

Liz has an average income. Among the work that she does is selling various types of clothing as a street vendor. It is through this work that she helps her family and has the means to cover the day-to-day expenses. She is a very hardworking woman and she is a go-getter.

Through this loan that she is requesting, she will be able to purchase winter clothing. The cold weather is approaching and she wants to be able to stock up and offer her customers a good variety. She is grateful for the opportunity she is receiving and it will be a great help to her.

In this group: Liz, Avelina, Basilia, Anatolia, Fermina, Carmen, Ada, Isabel, María, Sofía, Adelaida, Patricia, Esmilda, Blanca, Victoria, María, Zully, Marissa, Benita, Selia, Dolly*, Fátima*
