A loan helped to buy and sell blouses, cuts of fabric, sashes and fabrics for embroidery.

Divino Niño De San Pedro Group's story

Froilana is the group leader. She is a mother and a wife. She works selling traditional clothes, such as blouses, güipiles (embroidered blouses), sashes, cuts of fabrics; and she also works making traditional aprons in different sizes and colors of different prices and quality. She wants to continue selling a lot to reach her dream which is to have her own stall at the town market where she already sells. At the moment she recommends selling every day, but for her it is dangerous.
Froilana is very happy, because her children attend school and she wants them to move ahead. Froilana needs to buy many blouses, fabric cuts, sashes, fabrics for embroidery and ornaments for aprons, but she has no money. For this, she is requesting another loan.
