The loan that they will take out will benefit microbusinesses where Filomena is a member. She has been with Pro Mujer for 9 years. She joining at the invitation of a friend who visited her home. Today she has a neighborhood convenience store. She began the business with a bit of capital that her husband gave her. Now they see the income it is generating and they are able to pay for their children's education without any difficulty.

This form of work permits her to generate resources to support her family, as she is married and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health services that the institution provides.
