A loan helped a member to buy materials to make aprons to sell.


Dúo Los Yas Group's story

Group Los Yas, represented by Cristobalina, make typical female embroidery aprons in the municipality of San Juan Sacatepequez.

For some years now Cristobalina works in this job which benefits her because in her house she has the machinery for this trade. It is a satisfaction for her because she was able to provide work for other people, especially her family who works in her small business.

Cristobalina manages to make four dozen aprons of different designs a week because thanks to God she already has agreed orders.

For this reason she requires capital to buy fabric, threads and ornaments to make and decorate the aprons.

In this group: Maria Eugenia , Rafaela Cristobalina
