Synopsis

Microcredit may just be a theory to some, but to three low-income women in Cali, Colombia, it has become a source of hope as they work hard to take the stigma out of poverty and provide a better life for their families. Moving Forward is a powerful and inspiring tool that portrays the challenges that Luz Marina, Nancy and Consuelo have to face while revealing the impact of microcredit in their lives.
