A loan of $3,500 helped a member to buy cosmetics.

Mujeres Independientes Group's story

There are 16 women in this group, but in this cycle only 15 are requesting the loan. The women are heads of family who, through the poverty-elimination survey, will be able to find out each one's situation and work based on the results.

One of the members is María, the president of the group. She always tries to motivate her friends to work and get ahead. She earns a living selling a variety of cosmetics. She said she has good customers who always buy products from her.

She's requesting this loan to be able to buy a wider variety of cosmetics so she can attract the interest of her customers, because she supports her family with the job.

In this group: Maria, Edith, Noelia, Rosalba, Selva, Ramona, Celina, Elva, Rosa, Norma, Blanca, Adolfina, Ruth, Carolina*, Luz*
