Dúo Calle Nueva Group's story

Doña Maria Apolonia is originally from the town of Tecpán. She is 62 years old and has been dedicated to making handwoven goods for many years. Maria Apolonia sells her woven products so that she can help to support her family. All of her children are now grown. Thanks to the support she receives from her family, she is able to continue her work.

During the pandemic, her business was impacted financially due to lost sales. This had a great effect, so Maria Apolonia is requesting a new loan to invest in a variety of thread for making her woven products. As a result, she can keep working and make improvements to her house.
