Mujeres Trabajadoras Group's story

The Mujeres Trabajadoras or Working Women’s group is in the second cycle of the women’s committee program, in which they are completing the ‘poverty elimination’ questionnaire in order to improve living conditions for each participant by working together.

One of the members is Maria, who runs a retail business. She has a well-stocked small grocery store where she works from the early hours of the morning every day. Maria is working hard to augment her business and generate better income for her family.

She is requesting this loan to buy supplies for her store, such as vegetables, fruit, meat, sausages, and other products so she can continue her sales as she has in the past.

In this group: Dominga, Maria, Elizabeth*, Blanca, Sara, Vidalina, Gloria, Candida, Juana, Diana, Clara, Leticia, Ana, Salvadora, Rosa, Lourdes
