Mujeres Luchadoras Group

BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO THE MUJERES LUCHADORAS GROUP.  This was our first micro-finance loan to another social enterprise and we are delighted to see that our supporters and our customers can see the power of small purchases and small loans to help change lives.

This group is in its twelfth cycle of the Women's Committee Program. They are all hard working women who above all are fighters. They are also doing the poverty elimination survey so that they can grow and get ahead.

Lucila is improving her poverty situation according to the survey. This is thanks to her work in clothing. She is very good at what she does, which is why her situation is getting better.

Lucila is asking for this loan to buy fabrics and needles so she can continue selling clothes. She is grateful for this opportunity which will help her a lot.
We helped support her and others through a small micro-finance fund through KIVA. I'm delighted now to be able to re-lend that money to another women's project. This time in Mali.

Congrats again from all at ScENT
