A loan helped to buy and sell traditional clothing.

Dúo Francisco De San Pedro Group's story

Francisca Guadalupe has two adult children, is 46 years old, and a widow. She has worked selling a variety of traditional clothing such as cortes [skirts], fajas [belts], blouses of hand-embroidered fabric, woven güipiles [blouses], aprons, and shawls for 10 years.

Francisca's dream is to have a traditional clothing stand on the main road of her village and to have a store of staple products.

The end-of-the-year season is approaching and several women have already asked her for traditional outfits, but she does not have a lot of money to purchase. She must travel to the town where she purchases the traditional clothing at a good price and, for this, she asks for another loan.
