A loan helped a member to buy traditional clothing items like blouses, sashes, and skirts.


Vista Al Lago Group's story

Cristina is 25 years old. She is single and has a beautiful family with whom she lives in a community in San Antonio Palopó.

In order to make her own income and improve her family's situation, she works buying and selling local traditional clothing items. She has been in business for five years.

There is nothing more important to Cristina than her business because it allows her to make a living. That is why she is requesting this loan, which she will invest in buying more traditional clothing items like woven blouses, sashes, and skirts.

Her main hope in life is to improve her living conditions.
