Before joining Pro Mujer, Carmen Adelaida Cruz used to sell...
I used to work in one of the rooms below [at home] and it wasn’t good because a lot of dust would build up and my kids had less space for themselves. Now I have a workshop and my goal is to set up a shop so that I no longer sell to providers but to the public directly.
I have stayed with Pro Mujer because they have given me the chance to get ahead, to progress. And it’s not just that I have been able to overcome and change, but everything that has happened to me has had repercussions for my family. The loans enable me to continue investing in and growing my business, and the health services and trainings are a great benefit for us and our families. But mostly, I stay because I feel that I have found my own space where everything is possible and where I can do what I need to do to get ahead. Pro Mujer has taught me that it is never too late to start, to never lose hope and to be responsible.
