A loan of $1,950 helped a member working capital.


Las Bordadoras Group's story

The Bordadoras ladies have come to the Institución ASDIR to be able to get help to have better incomes. They embroider “guipiles” (traditional Mayan blouses) by hand. This has supported them and their families. During the five years that they have been working they have realized that they need more capital to be able to invest and to sell more of the embroidered “guipiles”. They do not have the money. The place where they live is an area of poverty. That is why they come to ask for help to be more competitive in the market. That way they will have a better level of live and get their children ahead with their education.
