Divino Niño Jesus Group's story

In the city of Carapeguá, in the Compañía Espartillar, seven miles from the office of Carapeguá, some Señoras of modest means, joined the group "Committee of Women Entrepreneurs" and decided to work together. These Señoras are hard-workers who make crafts for a living since they are from an areas where most people do craftwork. They need loans to invest in their respective work. This way they will be able to grow their businesses, which will help them grow as a group, and as individuals. Like Señora Natividad who needs a loan to buy thread and fabric of various types and colors. Señora Natividad has done craftwork since she was very young and continues doing it since she inherited this work from her family. She does the craftwork while her husband takes the orders, sells it, and brings it to the customers.
