Union Costaneras Group's story

Inocencia C. is one of the oldest members of the Union Costaneras group. At 63 years old, she has operated a textile business for 6 years, selling "aguayos" (a traditional hand-made, brightly-colored fabric). She needs the loan to buy sheep's wool and dyes. Inocencia's fellow members have a range of small businesses selling clothes, umbrellas, hats, socks, blankets, produce, cheese, meat and everyday grocery items. All of them need loans to buy merchandise that they will then resell to their customers.

In this group: Rosmery, Elena, Paulina Vicenta*, Julia, Justina, Antonia, Elsa, Inocencia, Marcela Maruja, Dominga, Maribel Celia, Nelly Lucy, Susana
