Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

This group is called "Mujeres Emprendedoras" (women entrepreneurs) and comprises 17 members, although one of them will not participate in this loan. They are on their 12th loan cycle through the women's committee. All of them work and help each other, as they live in the same neighborhood. Their situation is above the poverty line, meaning their level is green, thanks to having participated in the poverty elimination survey and the foundation program. One of the group members is Karina who says she will use the loan to expand her business selling sheets, comforters and underwear. On weekends she also sells food with her mother. Through effort and hard work, and her application of the vital behavior characteristics of a successful woman, Karina is improving her lifestyle. The loan she is requesting is to buy sheets, comforters and underwear to continue with her sales activity. She is grateful for this opportunity grow.
